What do I need to do to make my website available under IPV6? My site is running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) behind a load balancer. I just saw that Amazon has announced support elastic load balancers via IPV6.

What settings do I need to enable at Amazon? What DNS changes do I need to make? How can I test my site to ensure it is working?

  • You might have already found the answer to this question, but does this help at all? aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/… As long as the VPC is set with an IPV6 block, you should be able to select the "dual-stack" option on your load-balancer. For testing, I normally just use the curl -6 method for checking for IPV6 availability, example: curl -6 https://www.google.com, and nslookup -query=AAAA to confirm IPV6 DNS responses, example: nslookup -query=AAAA www.google.com. – devnull Nov 5 '18 at 1:40
