OpenBSD IPv6 Issue (SolusVM)

OpenBSD does not always play well with our current IPv6 networking setup. The following link provides more information: http://openbsd-archive.7691.n7.nabble.com/OpenBSD-ignoring-RFC-compliant-IPv6-neighbor-solicitation-td223348.html

OpenBSD has non-RFC compliant hardening that needs to be removed in order to allow your VPS to accept the RFC compliant response from our router. The text of the patch from that link is included below:

As a work around, you can try setting the prefixlen to 40 from 48. The only down side to that is if you try to reach another server from within our network via IPv6, it may not respond.
