Enabling IPv6 is optional for Open Connect Appliances. If you initially configured your appliance for IPv4 only, you can add IPv6 at a later date by following these steps.
As mentioned in the articles linked to below, this process will require reboots of the appliance. Ensure that you have drained the appliance of any Netflix traffic before you begin.
To enable IPv6:
- Modify the network configuration of the OCA to assign an IPv6 address, prefix, and default IPv6 gateway for the OCA.
- After the IP changes have taken effect, log in to the Partner Portal and configure the IPv6 BGP Session for the OCA.
