vserver ubuntu IPv6 network

Since some days there is IPv6 available for my server. But I noticed it just today. Editing /etc/network/interfaces and adding a new virtual interface didn’t work at all. The /etc/init.d/networking restart just showed errors. And ifconfig venet0 wasn’t satisfying.

What works is /etc/network/interfaces just adding the loopbback

iface lo inet6 loopback
        adress ::1
        netmask 128
        gateway fe80::1

Now the trick is to add /etc/rc.local and add this before exit 0

ip addr add 2a01:238:40ab:cd12:dead:beef:dead:beef/128 dev venet0
ip route add default via fe80::1 dev venet0

Than execute /etc/rc.local
Wonder o wonder. Ifconfig works and also ping6 ipv6.example.com

Than I had to add the new ipv6 adress to my apache config

Listen [2a01:238:40ab:cd12:dead:beef:dead:beef]:80

Don’t forget a to create a symlink from rc.local to /etc/rc2.d/S21rc2.local

Apache windows win64 x64 win32 x86 vc9 download

Apache binaries for windows in 64 bit and 32 bit can be found at apachehaus. I think here is a benefit using Visual Studio 9 aka Visual Studio 2008 instead of VS6. I use Visual Studio 2008 to obtain higher performance and better stability than the binaries built by the Apache Software Foundation.

Binaries are built using the latest versions of the Apache Portable Runtime, OpenSSL and Zlib compression library. OpenSSL and Zlib are built using the optional assembly routines for added performance in the SSL and deflate modules.

Different to other pages for apache on windows apachehaus also offers the httpd with IPv6.
