SDB:Mozilla and IPv6

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara

Version: 9.0


Mozilla freezes when you enter a URL.


By default, Mozilla uses IPv6 for the name resolution. However, if you use SuSEfirewall2, IPv6 is locked for security reasons. Thus, the request is ignored and times out after 60 seconds.


If you do not need IPv6 support, you can deactivate it completely.

In SUSE Linux 9.0, this can be done by changing the file /etc/modules.conf as follows:


 alias net-pf-10 ipv6
 #alias net-pf-10           off


 #alias net-pf-10 ipv6
 alias net-pf-10           off

Alternatively, a new version of SuSEfirewall2 is available via the on-line update. This fixed version no longer locks the necessary packages on the local host.

SUSE Linux 9.1 (in connection with Kernel 2.6.x) includes the file /etc/modprobe.conf instead of /etc/modules.conf.

If you want to disable IPv6 on a permanent basis in SUSE Linux 9.1, change the file /etc/modprobe.conf as follows:


  alias net-pf-10           ipv6


  alias net-pf-10           ipv6
  install ipv6              /bin/true
