Block IPV6 ~ ClearOS, for good!

Good day!

I have detected on my pfsense connected under ClearOS setup @
,,…. 😉 generating IPV6 traffic,…,

,,… here is the way to block all IPV6 in ClearOS!

Disabling the ipv6 module by adding or changing the following file on your ClearOS !

# nano /etc/sysctl.conf

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 =1

for sure you already block IPV6 in
# nano /etc/modprobe.d/disable-ipv6.conf

options ipv6 disable=1



Accessing your USB backup drive on ClearOS

First you will need to locate your USB name

# fdisk -l

After you located your USB drive you will need to check out the partition type

# fdisk -l /dev/sdb

To mount your USB drive run the following commands

# mkdir /mnt/somedir

# mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/somedir

Now navigate using a ftp client to /mnt/somedir

You will now be able to download your ClearOS baremetal backup files to a secure place! When finished just umount your USB drive

# umount /dev/sdb1

After you run the umount command you will see your baremetal backup again!
