I am located in Germany but the ipv6 address is from California.
I suppose there is some proxy active as I have played with kaspersky and hotspot shield recently.
I have disabled both of them though and I cannot find any process responsible for the ipv6.
Any clues how I can troubleshoot the issue?

  • See the proxy settings in internet control panel i.e. inetcpl.cpl

  • If you suspect a proxy setting then what is your OS proxy settings set to? Update your question. You should also indicate what OS you are using.

  • My proxy is set to automatic and if I disable that I get an ipv4 address but that is just a workaround as I want to find out which program did the change. According to OS it as indicated in the topic windows 10 and windows 7 both 64bit.

With some trial and error I found that it was in fact a leftover from hotspot shield which intercepted. I reinstalled and uninstalled it and after a reboot the IP now gets shown as expected.
