IPv6 Gateway IP

I wrote the last few days with the support and here was called 64 as netmask.

Thanks for the response, that has helped a lot.

I am now trying to set this up with a similar IPv6 system to what you have. First of all I checked Debian 8 just like you. All of my IP address formats are the same but the only thing that is different is that mine states 'netmask 128'. I don't really understand how this works because the gateway which also has a similar format looks to be in the /56 network?

Am I missing something? Your IP addresses follow the same format but say /64 which I think it still incorrect?

Thanks.

Hi,

When you use a 'normal' OS like a "Debian 8", KS will pre install the correct values (see /etc/network/interfaces).

What I have is this:
Code:
        address 2001:41D0:2:AA7B::1
        netmask 64
        post-up /sbin/ip -family inet6 route add 2001:41D0:2:AAff:ff:ff:ff:ff dev eth0
        post-up /sbin/ip -family inet6 route add default via 2001:41D0:2:AAff:ff:ff:ff:ff
Code:
My server IPv6 :     2001:41D0:2:AA7B::1
I added this route : 2001:41D0:2:AAff:ff:ff:ff:ff
Gateway :            2001:41D0:2:AAff:ff:ff:ff:ff

Thanks, I have been using ESXi but it doesn't seem to get the proper IP. I will start with a normal OS to find out!

Hello,

I have tried contacting support but never get any response. Does anyone know how I find out what my IPv6 gateway is?

Thanks.
