Connectivity Services

Let's try if you can connect with IPv6 to outside your local network. This must be done only once your operating system has IPv6 already enabled and verified to be working (following the instructions in the Configuration section).

In order to do that, please run in a terminal window:

ping6 -c5

If the result is the following (or similar):

PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) 2001:7f9:2000:100:20d:93ff:feeb:73 --> 2001:7f9:1000:1::103
16 bytes from 2001:7f9:1000:1::103, icmp_seq=0 hlim=62 time=85.239 ms
16 bytes from 2001:7f9:1000:1::103, icmp_seq=1 hlim=62 time=71.669 ms
16 bytes from 2001:7f9:1000:1::103, icmp_seq=2 hlim=62 time=75.247 ms
16 bytes from 2001:7f9:1000:1::103, icmp_seq=3 hlim=62 time=70.682 ms
16 bytes from 2001:7f9:1000:1::103, icmp_seq=4 hlim=62 time=67.656 ms
--- ping6 statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 5 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 67.656/74.099/85.239 ms

You should be able to get one or more "packets received".

Otherwise, it means that your operating system is not able to automatically configure IPv6 connectivity for you. Then you need to use a transition service among the several that you will find below (each one should provide the appropriate setup/configuration instructions for your own operating system). For the best results, try to use one located in your own country or nearby.

The available methods to get IPv6 connected for free are categorized as follows:
