Debian Squeeze Fixes: Make sun-java Work Online

Post date: 28-Dec-2009 21:49:36

If you have installed sun-java6-* recently on your Debian Squeeze box, maybe you have noticed that it does not really work with online applets. The reason is an update in sun-java6-* which needs a setting change for ipv6 routing. There is a workaround for this problem here: This is a copy of the workaround:

sudo sed -i \
's/net.ipv6.bindv6only\ =\ 1/net.ipv6.bindv6only\ =\ 0/' \
/etc/sysctl.d/bindv6only.conf && sudo invoke-rc.d procps restart
