How to enable or disable ipv6

To enable and disable the ipv6  on a particular interface refer following parameter

net.ipv6.conf.[interface].disable_ipv6 = [value]

Interface : Use name of the interface, where you want to enable or disable the ipv6

i.e eth1, em1

Run following command to apply the changes immediately

sysctl -p
