IPv6 Subnetting

Neuron shared this idea 1 year ago
Planned in the 6th gen

This is for IPmanager and your whole suite of panels including DCIManager

The industry standard for assigning a dedicated server IPv6 is a /64 subnet for each.

With your panel, if a bigger subnet like /36 is added into the networks page in IPmanager, millions of IPs are generated.

Instead, it should have the possibility to add a bigger block like /36, then specify the number of subnets to generate like /64 and then how many subnets to generate.

All this while specifying a syntax for the gateway/broadcast so all IPv6 subnets are generated in the same manner and each /64 subnet appears in the list of IP's instead of individual IPs.


Same when integrated with DCIM should allow assigning each dedicated server a /64 IPv6 subnet as well.


I was told this is in development.

I have 2 questions:

1. what is the ETA?

2. will this also be applied to the v5 panels? We will not upgrade to v6 because we like v5's skin much better so I want to know if we can get this functionality.

It will be applied to the v5 panels.

There is no ETA yet.

Unfortunately it wouldn't added in v5 panels. It is planned for the next gen.
