Enable IPv6 on ArchLinux

Hello everyone

I have a server with an IPv4 and I also have a IPv6 block:

What I don't know, is how to link my IPv6 to my Arch
(And I'm a noob with networks :S )

I tried to add manually an IPv6 address with this command:

sudo /usr/bin/ip -6 addr add 2001:bc8:3600:100::1/64 dev enp0s20

But my server doesn't seems to be reachable.

This is the full output of

ip addr
$ ip addr                                                         
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: enp0s20: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 00:07:cb:03:c4:a9 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global noprefixroute enp0s20
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 2001:bc8:3600:100::1/64 scope global noprefixroute 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::94c7:b7a6:afb0:e29f/64 scope link noprefixroute 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

So, I don't know how to enable IPv6.

Any help ?

Re: Enable IPv6 on ArchLinux

On archlinux ipv6 is enabled by default.
Please read thoroughly .

I think you want some_clients to access your archlinux server using ipv6 ?

Which services do they need to access and what type of clients are they ?

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

(A works at time B)  && (time C > time B ) ≠  (A works at time C)
