IPv6 configuration

How to configure your server for IPv6 connectivity

Our network fully supports IPv6. This page contains information on how to configure IPv6 on your server. For more general information on IPv6, please see our IPv6 page.

Addresses

Mythic Beasts server customers can get a /64 IPv6 address block for each data centre in which they have a server. Normally this will be automatically allocated when the first server in a data centre is provisioned.

If you have an older server that was configured before we routinely allocated IPv6 addresses, please email support@mythic-beasts.com to get your allocation. You should manually configure addresses from within your allocation to your server.

Routers

You should obtain routers using auto-configuration (which usually amounts to simply not specifying any). You should receive two responses. IPv6 auto-configuration makes use of ICMP, so it is important that you do not firewall out ICMP packets.

DNS resolvers

We have a pair of recursive DNS resolvers listening on IPv6 addresses. They are:

2a00:1098:0:80:1000::12
2a00:1098:0:82:1000::10

Reverse DNS

Reverse DNS for addresses within your allocation can be configured using our control panel. We can also arrange to delegate DNS for your allocation to your own nameservers servers.
