A Linux-like operating system has been installed on your VM. Here we take Debian 10 Linux system as example.
There are two ways to install IPv6 inside your VM. After IPv6 is installed inside your VM, you can do remote access to your VM if you have IPv6 on your machine (if you don't have IPv6 on your machine please follow HowTo Install IPv6 On Your PC).
This solution will setup IPv6 on ens4 interface inside your VM by modifying a configuration file. Even if you reboot your machine, the IPv6 will still be configured.
(find following network configuration in your rapid space console: kvm[your_VM]-ipv6-info)
auto ens4iface ens4 inet6 static address [your_IPv6] netmask 80 gateway [your_gateway]
This solution will setup IPv6 on ens4 interface inside your VM by running a script. If you reboot your machine, the IPv6 setup will be gone and you will need to run the command again.
Run the following command inside your VM:
wget -O- http://10.0.2.100/ipv6_config.sh | /bin/sh -
Run the following commands in your VM:
ip -6 address show dev ens4 #You should find your IPv6 address in kvm[your_VM]-ipv6-info in the line of inet6
ip -6 route# You should see a line like
default via [your_gateway] dev ens4 metric 1024 pref medium
From another machine which already has IPv6, you should now be able to ping your VM:
If you have installed ssh server (
apt install openssh-server) inside your VM, you can now access it with the command:
