I disabled IPv6 from my proxmox and, as already reported by others, I very often get this message in syslog:

status update error: iptables_restore_cmdlist: Try `ip6tables-restore -h' or 'ip6tables-restore --help' for more information

I suppose that I need to use ip6tables-save > path/file (or touch path/file considering that there are no rules ??) so that ip6tables-restore can work and pve-firewall won't output the warning. Right?

Problem is that I don't know "path/file"

How do you deal with this?
