how to verify ipv6 is working

on this page

it explains to test do this:

ping6 2001:4860:4860::8888

So if i go droplet, access, launch droplet console, and then type in that command, it just sits there forever and gives no output.

but if i do ping it gives output

and if i do ping6 it just sits there with no output again

Am I making a mistake, does this mean that my droplet is not configured properly, or is it okay and this is what happens normally?

My droplets ipv6 address is 2604:a880:400:d0::23ed:8001 if anyone can test that this works on ipv6

Hello @jamesmakin

Can you confirm that the configuration did not return any errors when running this command:

  1. sudo netplan apply --debug
