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.
