    What do cloud servers do Google and Microsoft offer for free?

    I know Amazon also has something similar but I don't know what it does

    As far as I know none of those offer them with unmetered or high bandwidth as here, so you might get a VPS for free, but then it's either 1 GB bandwidth included, or none at all (and it's all paid).

    They enabled IPv6! Some people got it working already. The setup is complex, have to enable and add it in like 5 different places. Search for "IPv6" in the top search bar, check out the docs (which still say it is only or the US Government).

    However I'm not having a success adding it to mine so far.

    Adding IPv6 to existing Subnet fails:

    Created a new Subnet, but there's no way to switch a VNIC from one Subnet to another. And cannot create additional VNIC, because the limit on their amount is reached. And cannot delete the existing VNIC (no such function), I suppose cuz it's the only one for the instance.

    Post your experiences, do you get the above error too?

    Working great. :)

    I went through the whole IPv6 documentation, step by step. It took some time, but in the end it worked perfectly fine.
    Within my Debian OS I can statically configure the IPv6 address with /64 mask in /etc/network/interface and simply use accept_ra to retrieve the gateway.

    Maybe Tokyo network isn't IPv6 ready yet? My free tier instance is in Frankfurt.

    Well, the steps are to create everything anew:

    Task 1: Create the IPv6-enabled VCN
    Task 2: Create a regional IPv6-enabled public subnet
    Task 3: Create the internet gateway

    If you went step by step and created all that, how do you switch existing instances to the new IPv6-enabled subnet? My issue is I can't add IPv6 to the existing subnet, and there's no way to switch an existing VNIC to a different subnet.

    Meanwhile, I deleted one instance (keeping the boot volume), and recreated the instance itself, selecting the new subnet on creation. This worked fine, and IPv6 works now for that one.

    Indeed you are right. I went through all the steps and whenever and object already existed I first tried to edit the existing one instead of creating a new one.

    When I reached the step you posted in your screenshot, I was actually able to save the changes for assigning an IPv6 CIDR block. I chose something != 0 for my subnet though this shouldn't matter.

    Have you thought about automating this process? Use the public routing tables and see which ASNs don't have IPv6.

    Most providers here dont even use their own ASN or IPs.
