Having inaugurated my new OVH’s VPS SSD 1 I am greeted by a notification reading
Your instance is now linked to a free IPv6 in addition to the default IPv4.
Indeed I can see a “IPv6” and a “Gateway” fields.
Problem is: I can’t ping it using this IPv6. I read OVH documentation on the subject but didn’t see anything related to systemd-networkd; and I’m pretty sure it’s what’s being used.
I tried to edit the default /etc/systemd/network/eth0-dhcp.conf like this:
[Match] Name=eth0 [Network] DHCP=yes Address=“IPv6” field Gateway=“Gateway” field [DHCP] UseMTU=true
How can I configure my VPS to make it accessible using IPv6?
The only obvious problem I see with your network config is:
This should instead be:
You are obtaining an IPv4 address with DHCP but configuring IPv6 manually. Thus you only want to enable DHCP on IPv4.
