Question

How do I enable ipv6 on a k8s managed droplet

I’ve followed the guides at https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/networking/ipv6/how-to/enable/ to enable ipv6 support on my droplets

Firewall allows all ipv4/ipv6 traffic, ifconfig is telling me I have an ipv6 address, but no traffic goes through

/ # ping6 2001:4860:4860::8888
PING 2001:4860:4860::8888 (2001:4860:4860::8888): 56 data bytes
ping6: sendto: Network unreachable

Are there additional steps required to get ipv6 to work correctly on k8s managed droplets?

Hey @me682126,

IPv6 support is currently a Droplet-exclusive feature. Load balancers, Reserved IPs, and other DigitalOcean products do not currently support IPv6.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!
