The use-ipv4 configuration variable

use-ipv4 decides whether the various servers accept IPv4 connections. If use-ipv4 is disabled, DNS lookups disregard IPv4 results.

use-ipv4 is a toggle. Its default value is true:

use-ipv4 = false

You can see its current value with the command aox show cf use-ipv4.

Toggle syntax

Toggles are written as a single word. Yes, true, on, 1, and enabled all mean that the toggle is enabled, while no, false, off, 0, and disabled unsurprisingly mean disabled. Toggles are case-insensitive.

Spaces are allowed at the start of the line, before and after '=', and after the value. Comments extend from '#' to the end of the line.
