Enable IPv6 by Default including Global Rule Sets
« on: June 14, 2018, 04:44:50 AM »
1. What actually happened or you saw:
CIS has IPv6 disabled by default. My ISP - SKY uses IPv6 and I am therefore unprotected from initial installation until I manually enable IPv6, create the necessary rules and reboot the PC.

2. What you wanted to happen or see:
I would like for CIS installation to detect IPv6 active in connection and enable it along with having the needed IPv6 rules in the Global rules that way after you restart your PC following the initial quick scan, you are protected and correctly configured.

3. Why you think it is desirable:
A lot of ISPs are now using IPv6, even Windows Firewall filters IPv6 by default. Enabling it either automatically or be prompted after Network Zone pop-up would mean that you were protected. Even just having the IPv6 Global rules would mean I wouldn't need to manually create the ICMP Packet to big, time exceeded, neighbour solicitation, router advertisement, IGMP and DCHP rules which I now can be imported but I manually add these whenever I do a fresh install which is a nuisance.

4. Any other information:
Futuretech has been a great help in advising me an other users on setting this up but I do think the use of IPv6 is quite prevalent these days and CIS should either have it enabled by default or on installation disable IPv6 in the network adapters on installation so either way you are protected.

P.S. I am behind a home router (home network) which has firewall enabled so I'm likely to be protected to some extent but I still think having IPv6 enabled is essential.

**Similar wishes have been posted some 3+ years ago but I believe it needs looking into again.

Thanks,

Eric
