Rapid.Space provides IPv6 connection on all servers, however, most ISP (Internet Service Provider) in China only provide IPv4 network. In order to help Rapid.Space users in China to adopt IPv6, without using proxy to access Rapid.Space service, we are going to introduce a simple way to install IPv6 in your personal machine(Linux, Windows or Mac), so this particular machine can use IPv6.

The alternative way is to get a local IPv6 network by setting up a Raspberry Pi with Re6stnet and its token, so that all devices under this network can enjoy IPv6 and access Rapid.Space services, the steps are explained on HowTo Get A Local IPv6 Network.

Download Ubuntu OVA

Download Ubuntu OVA file to your computer (with VirtualBox installed)

Import Appliance

Import the virtual appliance from PC to VirtualBox.

Configure shared folder

After the image imported: 

  1. Click "Setting" to configure the appliance
  2. Click "Shared Folders" to modify the shared folder path
  3. Verify the shared folder path on Windows and update the "Folder Path" in VirtualBox Settings


Start the virtual machine (The initial credential is slapos/slapos) and verify the shared folder is mounted on Ubuntu. Now you can synchronize the file between Windows and virtual machine through the configured the shared folder. 

The Ubuntu virtual machine is also configured IPv6 thanks to Re6st, so you connect to Rapid.Space VPS via Re6stnet with a better speed.
