Access website using IPv6 IP address
« on: October 30, 2019, 04:59:40 PM »
I got a new Linux server with CentOS 7. I installed Apache and uploaded my contents. Now, I want to check my website using IP address directly but the real problem is, the server has IPv6 only. I tried to access my IPv6 IP directly in my browser (like we do for IPv4) but it did not work. Is there a different method to access IPv6 IP directly in browser?

For IPv6, you will have to specify [ and ] in the URL as follow:

http://[2607:5300:120:11c:120:11c::]/

For more details, you can refer our following blog post:
