I think I am having issues trying to connect to servers that are using IPv6. Mainly related to local web development.
On this Github Issue relating to my specific problem and they recommend disabling IPv6 on the Mac and while this does fix the issue I would like to turn on IPv6 if possible, as long as it is secure to do so.
I went digging in the Airport Extreme Router to see if there might be some setting causing an issue. I found this setting that blocks incoming IPv6 connections.
I wanted to see if there was a reason that this blocking of IPv6 incoming was ENABLED and found a security bug from 2007. I am assuming it is fixed?
So the questions are:
- Is this setting safe to disable on AirPort Extreme routers?
- Would this setting be part of the problem causing me not to connect to IPv6 machines?
