To set the airgap server on an IPv6 network, perform the steps listed in this section after deploying the Photon OVA.

1. Set Up IP Address

A sample for setting up a static IPv6 address:
cd /etc/systemd/network/
The content of is:
Save the file and run the following commands:
chmod 644
systemctl restart systemd-networkd

2. Set Up IP Tables

By default, Photon OS opens only an SSH port for allowing access from a remote location. Other ports such as ICMPv6, HTTPS, and customized Harbor HTTPS must be opened before running the Ansible scripts for setting up the airgap server.
ip6tables -A INPUT -p icmpv6  -j ACCEPT
ip6tables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT
ip6tables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 8043 -j ACCEPT
ip6tables -n -L

3. Continue with General Setup Steps

Continue to set up the airgap server from the section Set up the Airgap Server onwards.
