My web is not ipv6 ready. How to configure it?

May 19, 2016 853 views
Nginx IPv6 Ubuntu

I have configured my nginx conf such as:

# redirect to non-www and to https
server {
        listen 80;
        listen [::]:80 ipv6only=on;
        return 301$request_uri;

server {
        listen 443 ssl default_server;
        listen [::]:443 ssl default_server ipv6only=on;

I have also configured AAAA records in my DNS.

But when I run my website against ipv6 website tester such as: it says "The server does not responds to a HEAD requisition. This is the most important test, this site is not accessible over IPv6!" Other tests also

What I could possibly missed? or How I can track the caused of the problem? Thank you!

  • Out of curiosity, are you possibly blocking ports 80 and 443 on your IPv6 address with a software firewall?

  • thanks for responding, sudo ufw status returns this:

    To Action From

    80 ALLOW Anywhere
    443 ALLOW Anywhere
    80 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
    443 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)

    anyway, i checked in that website, apparently DO's web is also not ipv6 ready? Does it mean all droplets under DO is not ipv6 ready?
