disable ipv6 in windows

Problem:
Today I encountered a problem with IPV6 (Internet Protocol Version 6) configuration, when I  tried to ping a windows 2008 R2 server I got response from IPV6 interface (Reply from ::1: time<1ms)

so I disabled the IPV6 under network connection, in spite of that I continued to get the same reply.
Solution:

  • Open Registry Editor (regedit).
  • 2. Navigate to the following registry key:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\tcpip6\Parameters\
  • Create the following registry value (DWORD type): DisabledComponents
  • Set value to 0
  • Restart your server.
