UPDATE: IPv6 load balancer endpoints are now GA.1 However, we continue to work on instance-level v6 addressing. Since I believe that at least some votes on this issue are for v6 all the way to the instance, I am leaving this issue open.lynn wilkins supported this idea ·lynn wilkins commented
Instance ipV6 will be useful.
My home machine is ipV6, thank you Comcast.
But my google compute engine can't scp a result file to my home machine.
Yes I can use scp to pull a file from the compute engine. That is awkward when I just want to
have the file show up in my results directory after a nights run.
So, yes, we need ipV6 to and from the compute engine.
