New user, really struggling to get ipv6 working on new Proxmox installation

RFC 8200 (STD: 86) Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6) Specification mandates SLAAC support for clients as part the spec.

I, for the life of me, cannot get ipv6 SLAAC support to work.

Are there any guides for setting up ipv6 that are complete?

In my environment, routers announce and assign prefix, gateway, and DNS. I can't get my proxmox to work.

Googling gets me snippets, but nothing that gets me all the way there. Most common response is disable ipv6 in proxmox.

I come from hyper-v background, so it could just be me. I'm frustrated after working on it for 3 days.
