Disabling IPV6 in Linux
When using a newer distribution you may find that it is taking a long time for your web browser to locate the page you have requested.
This is almost always down to IPV6 being enabled on the machine.
To disable it, log in as the root user
edit /etc/modules.conf or on some disrtibutions /etc/modprobe.d/modules.conf
Search for the line alias net-pf-10 and make sure that it now looks as follows:
alias net-pf-10 off
A reboot might be required.
