CAN I TELL ELITE DANGEROUS TO USE JUST IPV4 OR JUST IPV6?
In the network settings on PC and Mac versions of Elite, you can select which IP version you'd like to use. In some cases, this may help prevent connectivity problems.
USING IPV6 ONLY:
- Go to the game's Settings Menu, then Network.
- Locate the IPv6 and IPv4 connectivity settings.
- Set IPv6 to On and IPv4 to Disabled.
- Elite Dangerous will now use IPv6 exclusively when connecting to the ED servers.
USING IPV4 ONLY:
Some ISPs are currently rolling out their support of IPv6. If you find that your connection becomes unstable or acts in an odd manner, you can also try disabling IPv6 until a later date. You can use the same steps as above, but disable your IPv6 connection and enable IPv4 only.
On Windows, you can disable IPv6 fully. Please see this article from Microsoft for instructions on how to do this.
