    v217 v218  
    404404We encourage everyone to enable IPv6 on their relays. This is especially valuable on exit and guard relays.
    405405
    406 Before enabling your tor daemon to use IPv6 in addition to IPv4 ensure that IPv6 connectivity works from and to your server.
    407 
    408 From your server try to ping any IPv6 host:
    409 {{{
    410 ping6 google.com
    411 }}}
    412 
    413 If that worked fine, make your Tor relay reachable via IPv6 by adding an additional ORPort line to your configuration (example for ORPort 9001):
     406Before enabling your tor daemon to use IPv6 in addition to IPv4 you should do some basic IPv6 connectivity tests.
     407
     408The following command line will ping the IPv6 addresses of Tor directory authorities from your server:
     409{{{
     410ping6 -c2 2001:858:2:2:aabb:0:563b:1526 && ping6 -c2 2620:13:4000:6000::1000:118 && ping6 -c2 2001:67c:289c::9 && ping6 -c2 2001:678:558:1000::244 && ping6 -c2 2607:8500:154::3 && ping6 -c2 2001:638:a000:4140::ffff:189 && echo OK.
     411}}}
     412
     413At the end of the output you should see "OK."
     414if that is not the case do not enable IPv6 in your torrc configuration file before IPv6 is indeed working. If you enable IPv6 without working IPv6 connectivity your entire relay will not be used, regardless if IPv4 is working.
     415
     416If it worked fine, make your Tor relay reachable via IPv6 by adding an additional ORPort line to your configuration (example for ORPort 9001):
