IPv6 for RPS

How many IP is it for dedicated server by default...

I always thought 1 IPv6 for 1 server.... maybe this is wrong..

*falls asleep*

How I set it up on Debian Etch:

ifconfig eth0 inet6 add ::1/56


PING 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 2001:4860:0:1001::68: icmp_seq=1 ttl=54 time=18.2 ms
64 bytes from 2001:4860:0:1001::68: icmp_seq=2 ttl=54 time=18.1 ms
64 bytes from 2001:4860:0:1001::68: icmp_seq=3 ttl=54 time=18.5 ms
Thanks OVH

IPv6 is available for RPS. If you already have an RPS, you can know your IPv6 in the manager. You have 18446744073709551616 IPv6 per server. /64 per server.

It took us a bit of time to release the IPv6 for RPS because we were looking for a clever and pleasant solution for the customer when switching from a RPS to another one. Unfortunately, we have not found it, therefore we have decided to release first the feature. And then for the genius idea, we will have to wait a little bit. Sorry

Therefore, if you switch from an RPS to another one, you don't keep your IPv6. We are still looking for the solution...

What about if we put in place the IPv6 on the whole network backbone in order to establish the peering in IPv6? Hmm ...
