Setup a IPv6 Address

Upon request we provide you with a /64 IPv6 subnet for all our Root Server and Root VServer products. You will receive one subnet per server and be able to choose the preferred addresses out of this subnet.

Autoconfiguration neither by Stateless address autoconfiguration nor by DHCPv6 is supported in our network. Please configure the desired IPv6 addresses manually.

The IPv6 gateway has the address of fe80::1 on each subnet. This address out of the link-local subnet allows for a set up where no address out of your subnet needs to be assigned to the network infrastructure.

Configuration example for Ubuntu/Debian

# /etc/network/interfaces

# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# interface eth0
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 178.209.34.153
        netmask 25
        broadcast 178.209.34.255
        gateway 178.209.34.129

iface eth0 inet6 static
    address 2a02:0418:999:999::1
    netmask 48
    gateway fe80::1
