How do I disable IPV6 remotely.

I need a script that can disable IPV6 remotely, the powershell script I had did not work. The reason being is because when I remote into a machine for some reason opening the network settings as admin does not work. :(

why do you think you need to disable ipv6?

It was recommended for those working from home using VPN. It has resolved a few issue for me with Office 365 not seeing the network, even though I pushed down the Microsoft patch to fix that problem which did not resolve the issue.

It has to be disabled in the registry, disabling in the NIC config with powershell or manually is not enough, but as David has asked, why would you disable it?  IPv6 has worked flawlessly since XP SP3, and is used by many internal services in a domain.

It was not my idea, my customers 3rd level team told us to do it. Turning it off has resolved our issues though. Then again they do not use it even though its enabled.

The issue was likely not IPv6 but an improperly configured service such as DNS.
