Question

For setting up OpenVPN IPv6 server: requires DHCPv6-PD

I am trying to determine if my droplet has been assigned an IPv6 ‘routed block’. The requirement for this is /64 and, all I am able to determine from my configuration is that my range of configurable addresses is from f000 to f00f which seems to be not quite /64. Although, I openly admit that I know hardly anything about IPv6 except that I need this block in order to properly configure an IPv6 OpenVPN server (according to https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/IPv6 and http://www.tecmint.com/install-openvpn-in-debian/comment-page-1/#comment-883314). The first page clearly mentions the term “DHCPv6-PD” as though everyone in the world knows it, but I can’t find any association with DO on this one.

The problem is, because I am so confused about IPv6, I don’t even know how to properly formulate my question. I know that I need this assignment block, but it isn’t clear to me if I have been assigned a block that fits this criteria when I enabled the IPv6 on the Droplet nor do I see any references on DO’s site on how to request or obtain said block.

Thanks for direction and I apologize for being so clearly vague.

I tried a long time ago to get OpenVPN setup, finally gave up and looked for a easier solution which might not give me so much grief:

Free, built it out numerous times for myself and others, I don’t have a direct need for IPv6, but it supports it, and I know you can check the box for deployment of it on DO, and they have a quick deploy script, may be worth a look. Rock solid and does the job.
