    Hi, I have been given from my VPS provider the IP address 2a02:c200:0000:0010:0002:0002:0961:0001/112.

    I am trying to add it to the WHM/cPanel but I finally get the error "Invalid IPv6 range". If I put it as my provider gave it to me, I get the error "Must follow IPv6 syntax". If i give it with /119 I get the error "Invalid IPv6 range".

    How can I add the IPv6 address on my VPS / WHM? What am I doing wrong?

    Can anybody help?

    I think and believe that they gave me. Because I have ordered also a VPS with WINDOWS SERVER and in that VPS I have IPv4 and IPv6 addresses together with no problem. The issue is that I can't add the IPv6 address they gave me in the WHM. Should I have to do any "preparations" before adding the IPv6 in the WHM?

    Add a smaller range EG 2a02:c200:0:10:2:2:961:1/128 or 2a02:c200:0:10:2:2:961:1/124

    adding a /112 does not work you might want to verify with what IP's they actually assigned you

    The following third-party tool provides the start and end IPv6 address for an IPv6 address range using CIDR notation.

    https://www.ultratools.com/tools/ipv6CIDRToRange

    Try using the following range and let us know if it works successfully for you:

    Code:
    2a02:c200:0:10:2:2:961:0/112
    Thank you.
