My VPS provider is slow to adopt IPv6. Maybe they needs some motivations

It depends on how your server is configured.

By default, no IPv6 address is setup to your OVH server, just the main IPv4 address. So you would need to add this manually (and this may require a different OVH kernel - see the OVH Manager's Netboot kernels for those with IPv6 support).

If you did manually setup an IPv6 address on your server, then double check by issuing "ip6tables -L" from the shell. If you see the following output:

Code:
Chain INPUT (policy DROP)
target     prot opt source               destination         
ACCEPT     all      anywhere             anywhere            

Chain FORWARD (policy DROP)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy DROP)
target     prot opt source               destination         
ACCEPT     all      anywhere             anywhere
then your IPv6 side is NOT protected by a firewall.

OVH servers come with an IPv6 address space and lots of things are already IPv6 ready. Apache, Nginx Postfix, Dovecot, Squid3, etc. And it really isn't that difficult to setup. If you want to start using IPv6 and need help, just ask

Just two of the main things I've noticed:

1) Don't be afraid of the IPv6 address. It's not black magic...

2) When you enable IPv6, keep in mind that your IPv4-based firewall won't do anything to protect anything on IPv6. So use one for IPv6 as well!
