    how to delete IPV6 address by ifconfig up/down

    hi all,
    I have faced one problem in ifconfig in linux.I used ifconfig command then after i want delete the IPV6 address permanetly by ifconfig up/down, how is it possible plz give me some suggestion...

    For Example

    fconfig eth0
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:133:3F:7F:37
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    inet6 addr: fe80::213:d3ff:fe3f:7f37/64 Scope:Link <- here
    RX packets:205560943 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:1
    TX packets:742535676 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:515791587 (491.8 MiB) TX bytes:3168788086 (2.9 GiB)

    When fe80::213:d3ff:fe3f:7f37/64 is deleted by ifconfig command
    > ifconfig down
    > ifconfig up
    fe80::213:d3ff:fe3f:7f37/64 apportioned once again

    So i want delete IPV6 address permanetly.....

    You want to disable ipv6, right? I've crossed the bridge somehow but don't remember when or how. Google got me various links including Linux: How to disable the IPv6 protocol

    Edit: also found a pdf on deleting.
