You cannot uninstall IPv6. You can only disable it. Follow this article for that and disable IPv6 in registry

Hi bevhost:

I don't want to have ipv6 traffic in my network.
The problem is also the teredo traffic which is not filtered by the firewall.

HI ok
try this
To uninstall IPv6:-

Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
At the command prompt, type:netsh int ipv6 uninstall and press the Enter Key.
Restart the computer.

you should install a firewall that can block protocol 41.
This will not only block teredo. but also 6to4 , 6over4 etc.

I think uninstalling IPv6 is the wrong approach.

NAT has given people a false sense of security especially when it comes to firewalls.
A NAT gateway is not a firewall.

ok we have a firewall from Cisco, the ASA5510.
Can you help me with the commands to block protocol 41 ?

Eprs_AdminSystem ArchitectAuthor Commented:
ok thank you.

These commands are what I have to enter to the firewall ?
Then my whole IPv6 traffic is blocked ?
And I have nothing to do on the clients itself ?
