I am following this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-enable-ipv6-for-digitalocean-droplets to enable IP6 in my existing droplet.I manage to enable the IP6 but for the configuration part when I run the command,
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
the output is(in the Putty),
"# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
auto lo iface lo inet loopback
this is not what it is shown in the tutorial,so the question is am I using the wrong command(I am a Window user so I am using Putty and also using Serverpilot)? and where do I insert the “primary_ipv6_address” and the “ipv6_gateway”?

What you see in the
/etc/network/interfacesfile is correct. You are not running any wrong command. Existing contents of the
/etc/network/interfacesfile is not captured in the tutorial.
Recommendation in the tutorial is to append the following block of code to your existing
ipv6_gatewayshould be replaced with the IPv6 address and the IPv6 Gateway that you see for your Droplet in the Droplet Network View.
Make sure to save the edits to
/etc/network/interfacesbefore rebooting the Droplet.
