When I perform a nettop I see a rapportd which is listening using IPv6



rapportd.3301 0 B
tcp4 *:61923<->*:* Listen
tcp6 *.61923<->*.*



I have IPv6 turned off in my network setting. Can this service be disabled or removed?

According to Apple, you may not want to turn off rapportd:
SYNOPSIS
Daemon that enables Phone Call Handoff and other communication features
between Apple devices.

I have turned ipv6 off on the network settings, so why is it overriding the system network? More impotantly its on my Mac high sierra desktop. I am not going to ever use call handoff

I have removed the rapportd by turning csrutil off by booting into recovery mode and disabling csrutil then removing the rapportd process.

I re-enabled csrutil after completion.
