So I’m trying to setup ipv6 for my droplet following this instruction.
I’ve enabled ipv6 in DO panel after the creation and added following lines to the
# The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address Y.Y.Y.Y netmask 255.255.224.0 gateway Y.Y.Y.1 up ip addr add 10.18.0.5/16 dev eth0 dns-nameservers 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 iface eth0 inet6 static address 2a03:XXX:XXX:XXX:XXX:XXX:2001 netmask 64 gateway 2a03:XXX:XXX:XXX:XXX:1 autoconf 0 dns-nameservers 2001:4860:4860::8844 2001:4860:4860::8888 188.8.131.52
But after reboot system picks up only ipv4 settings and link-local ipv6 address
root@XXX:~# ip -6 a show dev eth0 2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 state UP qlen 1000 inet6 fe80::8080:e2ff:fedb:ae11/64 scope link valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
At the same time, I can set up ipv6 manually using, say,
Can you please point what do I missing?
