I just set up an new DirectAdmin, and I want to prepare it for IPv6 use. My ISP have gave me an range of IPv6 addresses that I can use. Lets say that address is 2a01:7c8:**:1f::.
My neworkadapter user DHCP to resolves its IP-addresses. When i type
ifoncig eth0 I get the following result:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 52:**:**:**:ce:f3 inet addr:37.**.**.44 Bcast:37.**.**.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: 2a01:7c8:****:1f::/64 Scope:Global inet6 addr: fe80::5054:ff:fe87:cef3/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:38941 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:29439 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:3779534 (3.6 MiB) TX bytes:5089379 (4.8 MiB)
As you can see, I have an IPv6 address set, but I can't
ping6 an IPv6 host. I get the error:
connect: Network is unreachable.
I decided that I needed an gateway, so I tryed to add one:
ip -6 route add default via 2a01:7c8:****::1 dev eth0 (2a01:7c8:**::1 is the gateway of my ISP).
But it trows an error:
RTNETLINK answers: No route to host.
Does somebody know what to do, and how to solve this issue? Thanks a lot!
