IPv6 configuration on Windows Server 2008

Hi all,
I just bought a kvm vps and have installed Windows Server 2008 R2 on it. How could I configure the ipv6 address properly with only two terms that have been granted, IPv6 gateway and gateway prefix? I have checked some information about the IPv6 configuration on Google, but "/48" is still confusing me and I have no ideas to fill out the three blanks in the IPv6 properties window with these two terms listed below.

IPv6 Gateway: 2a03:ca80:8001::1
Gateway prefix: 2a03:ca80:8001::/48

Am I missing something out? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :S


  • I suppose "gateway prefix" is the network you're given.

    Then fill it out like this:

    IPv6 address: 2a03:ca80:8001::2
    Prefix length: 48
    Default gateway: 2a03:ca80:8001::1

    And try if it works?

  • Thanks for the reply, I have already tried like that but it doesn't work, :(

    Depends on the provider. Check thei kb for gateway address

  • @MikHo The only seems useful description I can see from their website is "Gateway setup command (CentOS):", nothing mentioned Windows though.

    cat <<EOF > /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route6-eth0

    2a03:ca80:8001::/48 dev eth0

    default via 2a03:ca80:8001::1 dev eth0 onlink


    /sbin/service network restart

    Well the information is the same for windows as for CentOS. Its only different way to set it up.

  • @MikHo How? :S

    Addresses : 2a03:ca80:8001::/48 dev eth0.
    Gateway: default via 2a03:ca80:8001::1 dev eth0 onlink

  • @MikHo That doesn't make sense to Windows; IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length and Default gateway needs to be filled respectively. Am I wrong? :S
