Rapid.Space provides IPv6 connection on all servers, however, most ISP (Internet Service Provider) in China only provide IPv4 network. In order to help Rapid.Space users in China to adopt IPv6, without using proxy to access Rapid.Space service, we are going to introduce a simple way to install IPv6 in your personal machine(Linux, Windows or Mac), so this particular machine can use IPv6.

The alternative way is to get a local IPv6 network by setting up a Raspberry Pi with Re6stnet and its token, so that all devices under this network can enjoy IPv6 and access Rapid.Space services, the steps are explained on HowTo Get A Local IPv6 Network.


  1. Install re6st on Linux
  2. Install hide.me on Mac
  3. Install hide.me on Windows

Install re6st on Linux

Please follow HowTo Use Free SDN Service to request a token.

Download re6st (For the people in China, please wget download re6st by this link: https://deploy.erp5.cn/gnet/re6st):

wget https://deploy.erp5.net/gnet/re6st

Since you already have a token from HowTo Use Free SDN Service, you can just run the re6st command with root then:

sudo FORCE=yes bash re6st

It will download some packages and then install re6st. Type the token you got in above when the script asks like below:

Your token  [notoken]: [Your_token]
Enable Router Advertisement [no]: yes

After this done. Reboot your machine and you will see the IPv6 address from the command ip -6 route.

Once you have it installed, your Linux machine is able to access to IPv6 address. You can try ping to verify if there is some data receiving:

ping -6 google.com

Install hide.me on Mac

Apple is currently unfriendly with the open source IPv6 solutions(like meredo or teredo) so that you have to use the VPN: hide.me.
