VPN firewall prevents ipV6 so Visual Studio debugger is failing

Hello EE,

Our VPN firewall prevents ipV6 (blocks) so our Visual Studio debugger is failing to connect.
I wonder if anyone knows of a way in Visual Studio to turn off ipV6 and only use IPv4.

Hi operationsIT,

Yes, although it is NOT advisable to disable IPv6, if you have no other options here is how to: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929852/how-to-disable-ipv6-or-its-components-in-windows

Let me know how it goes!

I'm certain VS does not intentionally uses IPv6. It is probably getting a DNS AAAA record for the remote target, and prefers IPv6 over IPv4. So you will have to stop the OS to support IPv6, as shown above.
