Thanks in advance!
Yeah, ran into the same issue on my droplet, I had IPv6 enabled, but unless you are making a "new" droplet it won't fill in the IPv6 info automatically like it does during creation.
Basically needs the new IPv6 assigned as a static IP to eth0 with netmask 64, then the gateway for the IPv6 default route. Probablem is if you don't know that information off the top of your head it can be more difficult than it should be.
What you can do is gracefully shutdown your server, create a snapshop image. Then use that "image" to create a new droplet with IPv6 enabled. Digital Ocean will automatically configure the new image for the new IPv4, IPv6, etc. Then when the new image is up, start up Timekoin again (it will have a new IP now), try out the "firewall tool" in the options menu (Timekoin must be running to do this or else it blocks all peers when off), it has IPv6 testing support now. If all that is good, this new image should already have your key, generation status, etc. You can shutdown the old droplet, delete it, etc. You should be able to do all of that before 2 hours, probably 20 minutes tops. If the IP your old Timekoin server has can't be changed for some reason, you'll have to look at enabling the IPv6 manually via some Ubuntu info. I haven't checked myself about Ubuntu because my droplet is running CentOS, a bit different on configuring things.
If nothing else, I could just make a copy of my CentOS Timekoin and send it to you, you'll just have a different distro of Linux to deal with.
