how do i get multiple ipv6 with systemd-networkd

on android devices usually you will get 4 or more ipv6 addresses (link local and 3 global addressable)
one of them is for listening incoming connection from the internet (usually generated from interface's mac)
and the last two generated randomly which also used randomly for making a connection to outside internet (i think for privacy reason?)

but my arch install with systemd-networkd only have two addresses, link local and single globally unique address with my isp prefix and my interface mac

The default for (my) Android 11 is two interface ids. One generated via EUI64 (from the MAC address) and a temporary one. Those two combined with a public network prefix (2000::/3) should lead to 3 IPv6 addresses:

fe80::EUI64
public:EUI64
public:temporary

I'm not sure where your fourth address comes from - it may be a deprecated temporary address (they're usually valid for an hour or so).

This is the default for systemd-networkd:

fe80::EUI64
public:EUI64

So - do you want a temporary address for outgoing connections? Or do you want a different interface ID via "privacy stable" for both directions?

You add "IPv6PrivacyExtensions=true" to the [Network] block for your interface .network file below /etc/systemd/network
