Question

How can I disable IPv6 on an Ubuntu 13 VM?

I added blacklist ipv6 to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="ipv6.disable=1 console=ttyS0" to /etc/default/grub and rebooted but I’m still seeing IPv6 interfaces. Docker has an issue where if it sees ipv6 interfaces it won’t bind to any ipv4 ones.

Is there any way I can disable ipv6 on digital ocean?
