    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

    It's not only call handoff. It also appears to be used for iTunes Home Sharing, text message forwarding from your phone, and a number of features on your local network. https://apple.stackexchange.com/que...why-does-it-want-incoming-network-connections

    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.
