You can test the IPv6 connection from within your droplet by logging into your server and trying to reach the Google IPv6 name server with the following command:
ping6 2001:4860:4860::8888
If this is successful, it means that your IPv6 is configured correctly. It will be able to communicate with other sites and servers that have IPv6 enabled throughout the internet. You can also connect to your server through an IPv6 tunnel. DigitalOcean is directly peered with Hurricane electric for best IPv6 over tunnel performance:
