Droplet not reachable via IPv6

Posted October 18, 2015 2.9k views
Ubuntu IPv6

I enabled IPv6 for an existing droplet and followed this guide to set it up: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-enable-ipv6-for-digitalocean-droplets

I am now able to ping6 google.com, both from my local computer as well from the droplet. However, I can’t reach the droplet via IPv6.

mtr -6 <ip> shows fra1-edge1.digitalocean.com as the last reachable host. Any idea how to fix it or at least analyse the issue?

The droplet was created with docker-machine, I just installed all updates (New kernel installed, but I still use the default one), started a docker container and tried to setup IPv6 as described in that guide.

Thanks!
