We can add the IPv6 address on a Windows server via the graphical user interface itself. The process is very similar to how we are adding the IPv4 addresses. Here I am providing the steps to do it from the Windows interface:
- Login to Windows OS via RDP.
- Right-click on the network icon in the task manager and select 'Open Network and Internet Settings' option.
- Scroll down and select the 'Network and Sharing Center' option.
- On the left side menu, select the 'Change Adapter Settings' option.
- There you can see the active NIC card and right-click on the same and select the 'Properties' option.
- Double click on the 'Internet Protocol Version 6(TCP/IPv6) option there.
- Click on 'Use following IP Address' option and provide the IPv6 address, subnet, and gateway details and save.
