[TUTORIAL] Using IPv6 on SYS (probably similar on OVH)

IPv6 issued to me by SYS XXXX:XXXX:XX:XX6e::/64 (X's are redacted for privacy)

I am using Windows 10 as a testbed running in Proxmox 7.1-8

For IPv6 config:
Address: XXXX:XXXX:XX:XX6e:0000:0000:0000:1000 (you can change any of the 0's in the last 4 blocks, I used 1000)
Prefix: 64
GW: XXXX:XXXX:XX:XXFF:FF:FF:FF:FF (erased 6e and replaced with FF, then used FF in the last 4 blocks)
DNS: 2001:4860:4860::8888 (Google DNS, feel free to use whatever)

ping -6 google.com (ping using IPv6 format)

The NIC I am using already had IPV4 IP and MAC address tied to it. (This probably still needs to be done even if you're just trying to do IPv6)
I disabled IPv4 in Network Settings and was able to access the internet without any issues.
