    Default FTP access to non-static IPv6 address

    I back up my data to a FTP server in my daughter's house and this has been running successfully for several years. I overcame any changes to the IPv4 address by using a dynamic DNS name from afraid.org.

    However, she has recently been given a CGNAT address (without any warning)
    I know that 90+% of internet users would not even notice this (she didn't but I did.)

    Simple fix I thought - access via IPv6 but although I can "see" her house, this address is not static either.

    So I signed up for a name at dynv6.com

    Problem is, how can I then FTP to that site?

    I am using Filezilla and any full IPv6 address has to be enclosed in square brackets, but the dynv6 address is not "full", how do I format the address?

    xxxxx.dynv6.net:ba27:ebff:fe43:2478
    [xxxxx.dynv6.net:ba27:ebff:fe43:2478]
    [xxxxx.dynv6.net:ba27]:ebff:fe43:2478

    I just wish 2degrees had left all IPv6 addresses as static.
    No-one has come up with any reason at all why they had to make them dynamic.

    No reason? It was because they were running out of addresses like most isps.

    You can get a static ip, but will generally have to pay for it.

    They were not running out of IPv6 addresses - in fact they will never run out of them.
