I'm trying to setup IPv6 on my OVH server using their guide.
In the article they recommend to
disable IPv6 autoconf and router advertising to prevent known issues
You can do so by adding the following lines to your
sysctl.conffile, which is located in
Once this has been done, you can apply those rules by executing the following command:
sh sysctl -p
I added those parameters to my the sysctl config like described. When trying to apply the config using
sysctl -p I get the following error(s):
sysctl: cannot stat /proc/sys/net/IPv6/conf/all/autoconf: No such file or directory sysctl: cannot stat /proc/sys/net/IPv6/conf/all/accept_ra: No such file or directory
