Question

IPV6 not working. I can ping the gateway but not any other ipv6

I followed every step on https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/ipv6/how-to/enable/

But I can’t still ping6 2001:4860:4860::8888

It says that the network is unreachable.

When I ping the ipv6 gateway, although, it’s fine. The gateway is returning the packets.

IPv6 configuration is usually straight forward, I guess something might be happening here, so DigitalOcean should be able to shed some light on this.

In the meantime if I have other suggestions, I’ll let you know. Hopefully this will be sorted soon.

Hello!

Can you see the network interface when you’re logged on the droplet via ssh? ifconfig should list you all the network interfaces and you can double check everything. If you have rebooted the network, you wont need to restart the network service, but you can give it a try.

Let me know how it goes.
