What's the point of enabling IPv6 on your edge devices if you disable it
on IBM i? So your Linux and Windows systems can use it? I suppose if your
IBM i is not able to be reached from the internet, that's a reasonable
recommendation, though.

Remember that most of those recommendations are to disable IPV6 on IBM i

for local use. This is not the same as disabling IPV6 on your edge
devices such as routers or firewalls. Completely different animal.

As far as I am concerned this recommendation still applies.

In this list I have seen several times advise to disable IPv6 as
solution to slow network. Not lately, but at that time I replied that
seems to me a very bad advise.

Today there was a "first" for IPv6, see:
