my file /etc/sysconfig/network is:

NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=ns507858.ip-192-99-5.net
NOZEROCONF=true
GATEWAY=94.23.2.254
NOZEROCONF=true
GATEWAY=192.99.5.254
NETWORKING_IPV6=yes



my ovh ipv6 range is: 2607:5300:60:3630::/64

what right ipv6 and ipv6 gateway, I need put in fille: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Read /usr/share/doc/initscripts*/sysconfig.txt and look for the IPV6* entries you can add to the ifcfg file.

setup:

IPV6INIT=yes
IPV6ADDR=2607:5300:60:3630::1/64
IPV6_DEFAULTGW=2607:5300:60:3630::1

And this:

IPV6INIT=yes
IPV6ADDR=2607:5300:60:3630::1/64
IPV6_DEFAULTGW=2607:5300:60:3630::2

but both show this:

-bash-4.1# ping6 ipv6.google.com -c4
PING ipv6.google.com(2800:3f0:4002:805::200e) 56 data bytes

From 2607:5300:60:3630::1 icmp_seq=3 Destination unreachable: Address unreachable
From 2607:5300:60:3630::1 icmp_seq=4 Destination unreachable: Address unreachable

I just realised, this is OVH and they do really weird stuff. You need to ask them as the setup is peculiar to them.
