HI to everybody,

Following my Internet provider's transition to IPv6, I lost my dynamic IP (migration is thus performed that way: static IPv4 and dynamic IPv6).
That is why I direct myself to a VPN ... (to prevent static IP, ddos attacks, spoofing...)
I contacted for info VPN who said he has the "leak protection", however it does not support IPv6 on its network, I will navigate with IPv4 on its network.
Does Navigating through the VPN will remains safe despite this new step to IPv6 which unfortunately I do not understand anything. (In fact if I leave the option enabled IPv6 on my box I or disables I'm always in IPv4 when I visit sites like mon-ip.com).
I'm not talking about peer to peer protocol security breach because I did not download but other vulnerabilities are also present, allowing people connected to the same VPN than you to easily find your MAC address and computer name ( Korben's source).
Or do I have before to subscribe to a VPN to disable all that refers to IPv6 on my computer:
- Net BIOS over TCP / IP
- Internet Protocol version 6
- All rules concerning IPv6 firewall
And obviously the IPv6 option on the box.
Thank you very much for the answers you can give me.
Best regards
