New POP in Montreal Online

March 4, 2013 — We have gone live with our new 100% Juniper network in a new state of the art data center in the Montreal Stock Exchange building. The network is currently in the testing phases as we await cross connects to be completed. Over the coming month, we will be deploying new Intel E5 based VPS nodes for Large and Extra Large VPS accounts. Current customers will be migrated seamlessly once they are available.

We will also be increasing resources on the Small and Medium plans as we have added more bandwidth capacity.

How to Ensure the IPv6 Default Route is Active On Boot

IPv6 World LaunchA common issue we notice is that users who have IPv6 enabled on their VPS have connectivity issues when rebooting. The problem 99% of the time, is the default route for IPv6 traffic is not present. By default, OpenVZ virtualization doesn’t seem to add the default route via the venet device unless specified by the user (unlike IPv4 behaviour).

The solution

Type the following command as root:

ip route add ::/0 dev venet0

While the above solution will work, it is not practical as most admins don’t want to manually type this each time they restart network services or reboot their machines.

To ensure the default route is present on boot. Add the following 2 lines of code to the /etc/sysconfig/network file.

NETWORKING_IPV6=”yes”
IPV6_DEFAULTDEV=”venet0″

This will ensure that your OS will add the default route for IPv6 on boot.
