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.

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