On the IPv6 > Global tab you can enable IPv6 support for Sophos UTM. Moreover, if enabled, IPv6 information is provided here, e.g., status information or prefix delegation information.

IPv6 support is disabled by default. To enable IPv6, do the following:

  1. On the Global tab, enable IPv6.

    Click the toggle switch.

    The switch turns green. If IPv6 has never been enabled or configured before, the Connectivity area displays the string None.

As soon as IPv6 is enabled, you will find several network and other object definitions referring explicitly to IPv6 around WebAdmin. You can generally use them as you are used to from IPv4 objects.

Note – If IPv6 is enabled, the icons of network objects and the like bear an additional mark that tells you whether the respective object is an IPv6 object or IPv4 object or both. Between enabling and disabling IPv6 should be at least 10 seconds.
