6.3. Removing an IPv6 address

Not so often needed, be carefully with removing non existent IPv6 address, sometimes using older kernels it results in a crash.

Usage:

# /sbin/ip -6 addr del <ipv6address>/<prefixlength> dev <interface> 

Example:

# /sbin/ip -6 addr del 2001:0db8:0:f101::1/64 dev eth0 

6.3.2. Using "ifconfig"

Usage:

# /sbin/ifconfig <interface> inet6 del <ipv6address>/<prefixlength>

Example:

# /sbin/ifconfig eth0 inet6 del 2001:0db8:0:f101::1/64
