Using IPv6

Posted by / Apr 20, 2015 / Categories: Getting Started / Tags:

Each customer is allocated a /64 IPv6 subnet for each virtual machine. One IP (/128) is automatically assigned to your virtual machine upon creation.

N.B. please note virtual machines created before we launched IPv6 support might not have a subnet allocated. Please ask support to allocate one for you.

To view your IPv6 details, login to the control panel, select the virtual machine in question and select the Network tab:

ipv6-networktab

Click “Manage” for the IPv6 subnet in question to view more details as follows:

ipv6-subnet

You can set the reverse DNS entry for your IPv6 address by clicking “[Edit]” in the Reverse DNS column. For this to work, you will need a corresponding forward DNS entry (AAAA record). Learn more about reverse DNS.
