Migration from IPv4 to IPv6 protocol


Know which services work on this IPv6 port and which only work on IPv4? And if both protocols can be activated (dual stack) to have access to services that do not have IPv6, and continue to work with IPv4.

1 Answer

These services listed below support IPv6: Elastic Load Balancing, AWS IoT Core, AWS Direct Connect, Amazon Route 53, Amazon CloudFront, AWS Web Application Firewall, and S3 Transfer Acceleration, EC2 instances.

For a VPC IPv6 is supported, however it has to be a dual stack. There is no IPv6 only for VPC.


+Apart from above blog, I found another way to check more information related to which services supports IPv6 is checking the link ( https://aws.amazon.com/new/ ) where new features is announced by AWS and search for IPv6.
