My Internet connection doesn't have its own dedicated IPv4 address. I've port forwarded my Ubuntu computer to the DMZ, which I know is working because I have Apache installed and the web server is accessible from the IPv6 address.

When I put in an IPv6 address into Minecraft, it doesn't seem to work. How do you connect using IPv6 in Minecraft? Is there something special you need to do?


There's currently no way to do this in unmodded (vanilla) Minecraft. I'd suggest buying a domain and using something like Dreamhost DNS to route the domain or a subdomain to the IP.

  • You can do pretty much anything with modded Minecraft. I'm not familiar enough with Java to tell you how to do it though. – ForExampleTheCat Oct 27 at 4:41
