By default, IPv6 gateways can be used for only private communication. You can enable and manage IPv6 Internet bandwidth for an IPv6 gateway. This way, you can manage the outbound and inbound IPv6 traffic in a flexible manner.

Prerequisites

A virtual private cloud (VPC) with an IPv6 CIDR block is created. An Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance that supports IPv6 addresses is created in the VPC. For more information, see Create a VPC with an IPv6 CIDR block.

Enable IPv6 Internet bandwidth

You can enable Internet bandwidth for an IPv6 address. This way, an ECS instance in a VPC can use the IPv6 address to access the Internet and receive requests from IPv6 clients over the Internet.

  1. Log on to the IPv6 Gateway console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region where the IPv6 gateway is deployed.
  3. On the IPv6 Gateway page, find the IPv6 gateway that you want to manage and click Manage in the Actions column.
  4. On the details page of the IPv6 gateway, click the IPv6 Internet Bandwidth tab, find the IPv6 address that you want to manage, and then click Create IPv6 Internet Bandwidth in the Actions column.

  5. On the IPv6 Internet Bandwidth (Pay-As-You-Go) page, set the following parameters, click Buy Now, and then complete the payment.
    Parameter Description
    Traffic Select a billing method for the Internet bandwidth.

    Valid values: Pay-By-Bandwidth and Pay-By-Data-Transfer. For more information, see Billing.

    Bandwidth Specify a maximum bandwidth value for the Internet bandwidth.
    Billing Cycle Select a billing cycle for the Internet bandwidth. Valid values: Day (By Day) and Hour (By Hour).

    If you set Traffic to Pay-By-Bandwidth, you can select only Day (By Day). If you set Traffic to Pay-By-Data-Transfer, you can select only Hour (By Hour).

Modify the maximum bandwidth value

  1. Log on to the IPv6 Gateway console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region where the IPv6 gateway is deployed.
  3. On the IPv6 Gateway page, find the IPv6 gateway that you want to manage and click Manage in the Actions column.
  4. On the details page of the IPv6 gateway, click the IPv6 Internet Bandwidth tab, find the IPv6 address that you want to manage, and then click Modify IPv6 Internet Bandwidth in the Actions column. modify
  5. On the Upgrade /Downgrade page, move the slider in the Bandwidth parameter to adjust the maximum bandwidth value, select Terms of Service, click Buy Now, and then complete the payment.

Delete IPv6 Internet bandwidth

If an IPv6 address does not require access to the Internet, you can delete the Internet bandwidth of the IPv6 address.

  1. Log on to the IPv6 Gateway console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region where the IPv6 gateway is deployed.
  3. On the IPv6 Gateway page, find the IPv6 gateway that you want to manage and click Manage in the Actions column.
  4. On the IPv6 Internet Bandwidth tab, find the IPv6 address that you want to manage and click Delete IPv6 Internet Bandwidth in the Actions column. delete
  5. In the Delete IPv6 Internet Bandwidth message, click OK.
