Enable IPv6 on a VPC with a Private Subnet and Egress-Only Internet Gateway
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.
