Howto disable link local IPv6 address RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guys,

    is it possible to disable only the link local IPv6 address permanently? The command netsh interface ipv6 delete address "lan" fe80::xXxX:xXxX:xXxX:xXxX%xx allows me to remove it only temporary. After restarting the computer, it will be assigned again. Additionally, I tried netsh interface ipv6 set global randomizeidentifiers=disabled with the same result.

  • As long as IPv6 is enabled, there is no way to disable link-local addresses.

  • Thanks for your reply. The only workaround that i found, is to disable the randomizeidentifiers and add a startup script to the local GPO which deletes the Link Local Address derived from the MAC. That`s not a really dynamic solution :)
