How To Disable Teredo IPv6 Tunneling in Microsoft Windows

Greg Ferro’s post about how Microsoft Teredo is a suboptimal networking solution made me think it’s time to update my old post on how to disable Teredo in Windows 7 and in Windows 8. For the record, I agree — I’ve had serious problems with it conflicting with my native IPv6 connectivity.

1. Open a command prompt with administrator privileges (Start->Accessories->right click on Command Prompt, choose Run as Administrator):

2. Issue the command:

netsh interface teredo set state disabled

3. You may need to reboot, depending on your version of Windows.

If you wish to re-enable Teredo at some point you can issue the command:

netsh interface teredo set state type=default
