Question

IP6 Does not work for Ubuntu 22.10

I followed the toturial and [https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/networking/ipv6/how-to/enable/](How to Enable IPv6 on Droplets). I double-checked everything, but the server is not accessible using IP6. Only IP 4 is working.

ping [ip4] is fine

ping [ip6] is “Destination net unreachable.”

Hi there,

Keep in mind that to use IPv6, your ISP needs to also support IPv6.

Not all ISPs offer IPv6 addresses for customers, so you may not be able to connect to an IPv6 address directly from your local machine. For example, if your local machine does not have an IPv6 address, you will not be able to connect to your Droplet using its IPv6 address.

You can locate your public IPv6 address using:

If you SSH to your server and then run ping6 2001:4860:4860::8888 does it work?

Note, change 2001:4860:4860::8888 with your server IPv6

Best,

Bobby
