How to set IPv6 network settings
The Matrix must be added to your network like other devices. Use the network settings page to set IPv6 settings for IP address and prefix, gateway, host name, and more.
The Matrix is an active network device (unlike a typical optical TAP for instance). The Matrix has a hardware address and requires an IPv4 address assignment to join your network. However, IPv6 can optionally be enabled and used side-by-side with IPv4—the matrix supports native dual-stack. Address assignments can be manually configured or dynamically assigned using DHCP or DHCPv6.
1. Starting in the dashboard, click System.
2. Click Network.
3. In Hostname, type a host name for the Matrix.
4. In the IPv6 Settings area, select IPv6.
5. Use DHCPv6 for address assignments:
a. Select DHCPv6.
The manual configuration settings become hidden.
b. Click Save.
DHCPv6 is enabled. No further configuration is necessary.
6. In IPv6 Address, type the IPv6 address the Matrix must use.
7. In IPv6 Prefix, type the network prefix associated with the chosen IPv6 address.
8. In IPv6 Gateway, type the IPv6 address of the gateway the Matrix must use.
9. In IPv6 DNS Address 1, type the IPv6 address of a DNS server.
The IPv6 address of at least one DNS server is required. If two servers are declared, the first server is used unless unreachable.
10. In IPv6 DNS Address 2, type the IPv6 address of a DNS server.
11. Click Save.
You successfully added the Matrix to your network with IPv6 settings. The changes take effect immediately.
