Nice one!

Hello all,

been off the forums for a while, went playing with Arch, learned a bit about Linux but decided I didn't want a system that broke with every few updates :S

So I'm back with Waldorf and it's even better than Statler, it's immense!

I come from a security background and I would like to suggest the following is added to /etc/sysctl.conf for future releases to enable ipv6 privacy extensions:

  # Enable IPv6 Privacy Extensions
  net.ipv6.conf.all.use_tempaddr = 2
  net.ipv6.conf.default.use_tempaddr = 2
  # The following are for individual interfaces
  #net.ipv6.conf.eth0.use_tempaddr = 2
  #net.ipv6.conf.eth1.use_tempaddr = 2
  #net.ipv6.conf.wlan0.use_tempaddr = 2

Sorry if this has been said already elsewhere!

Re: Nice one!

Hello,ginjachris! welcome and thanks for flying #!  cool

Nice one indeed! and that's very kind of you!, since the adoption of IPv6 took off Globaly in 2012 as i recall .. I'm sure this will be most useful to set. So thank you!  smile

# any idea why it's going slow though!
