Need info on Archlinux default network setup and why ipv6 does not work by default.

2016-11-10, 06:54 AM
I have a vps with archlinux setup. I would like to know how the network was setup. I have 2 related questions.

1) I figured out the ipv4 connection is dynamic. That is the limit of my knowledge. I would like to know what tool was used to setup the network (like systemd-networkd or netctl or dhcpcd).

2) when I tried the command ping -6 ipv6.google.com, the result was network not reachable with the default setup. Why is that ?

My first question is important please help me out. Thank you in advance.
