I used the following command to ping the IPv6 addresses of Tor directory authorities from my server (as described here under 7. https://community.torproject.org/relay/setup/post-install/):

ping6 -c2 2001:858:2:2:aabb:0:563b:1526 && ping6 -c2 2620:13:4000:6000::1000:118 && ping601:678:558:1000::244 && ping6 -c2 2607:8500:154::3 && ping6 -c2 2001:638:a000:4140::ffff:189 && echo OK.

Response:

At the end of the output you should see "OK" but there seems to be a problem. Can someone explain to me how to troubleshoot this so I can enable IPv6 on my guard relay?

(It looks like you have an error when copy-pasting your command.)

You ran the following ping commands:

ping6 -c2 2001:858:2:2:aabb:0:563b:1526
ping6 -c2 2620:13:4000:6000::1000:118
ping6 -c2 2001:67c:289c::9
ping6 -c2 2001:678:558:1000::244
ping6 -c2 2607:8500:154::3
ping6 -c2 2001:638:a000:4140::ffff:189

It failed when trying to ping 2607:8500:154::3. This is no longer an IPv6 address for any authority. You should remove this address from the list of pings, and raise an issue on Tor's Gitlab to update the documentation.

no error with copy and paste - you've got the correct one-liner command. Two ampersands are launching the next command only if a previous one has not failed - and your last ping seems to fail: 2 packets sent 0 received, so the next line - that echoes the "OK" string - is not executed
