All IPv6 addresses are public by default. But sometimes there's a need to keep instances private. In this hands-on lab we are going to enable IPv6 on a VPC. We will then configure a subnet to be private, and then validate that our instance will not be accessible over the internet over IPv6.

NOTE: If you do not have IPv6 in your environment, please consider using Linux Academy Cloud Playground to validate the IPv6 connectivity.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
