Re: What networking protocols are superfluous?
Thanks, Malke, your answer: "The answer to that question is disable IPv6 and
was exactly what I was looking for - although by disabling IPv6, I suspect

practically 100% of users - particularly after reviewing the Wikipedia
article on IPv6.
Very interesting! Thank you for responding.
