Description Thomas Witt 2013-02-13 14:35:37 UTC
if you set net.ipv6.conf.default.use_tempaddr = 2 net.ipv6.conf.eth0.use_tempaddr = 2 in /etc/sysctl.d/* AND use NetworkManager, then NM overwrites net.ipv6.conf.eth0.use_tempaddr to 0.


Reproducible: Always



Expected Results:  
NM should respect privacy settings (or default to privacy enabled)

The patch attached to the ubuntu bug fixes that for me (nm-0.9.6.4-r1)

This sort of feature request is best handled in the upstream bugzilla.

Please report this to upstream and post link here -> bugzilla.gnome.org
Comment 3 poncho 2013-08-16 15:57:46 UTC
it does honor net.ipv6.conf.default.use_tempaddr if configured in /etc/sysctl.conf

see http://cgit.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/tree/src/devices/nm-device.c#n3093

Closing as upstream as we cannot do much more here until they don't care :/
