I've added my IPv6 address to my cloud firewall but cannot access my droplet. However, when I remove that and add my IPv4, I can access my droplet. What am I doing wrong?

For example I add the following fake IPv6 to my cloud firewall I can't access:

1111:1111:1111:1111:1111:1111:1111:1111/128

However when I add the following fake IPv4 to my cloud firewall it does:

111.111.111.111/32

When setting up your firewall for ipv6 did you ensure that sources was set to all ipv6 and not only ipv4?
