out of curiosity: why? –  akira Nov 16 '13 at 16:56
    
To keep opera traffic out of ipv6 tunnel. –  kilves76 Nov 16 '13 at 17:06

adhoc idea: you might succeed by using a ipv4-only-proxy. –  akira Nov 16 '13 at 17:07
    
I can do that if there's no other option, as a matter of fact i have such installed already, but would need to run another instance without ipv6 support. However it'd be a lot cleaner to set it in Opera alone... –  kilves76 Nov 16 '13 at 17:09
    
Actually it wouldn't help because i couldn't proxy Opera's mail client traffic with the solution i have. –  kilves76 Nov 16 '13 at 17:16

As opera does not have the feature a solution could be forcebindip

http://old.r1ch.net/stuff/forcebindip/

ForceBindIP.exe -i 192.168.1.25 "C:\opera.exe"

where 192.168.1.25 is the ip of the interface you want to use

This application redirect any connection to a specific interface and keep it there.

Just replace all your opera shortcut to point them to forcebindip

As this program is source closed you could be sceptical in a perspective of using it all the time, i personally disassembled it and checked every action and it seem that it's a clean application.
