MidnightBSD does not currently support ENA interfaces as of 1.2.x. This limits you to older instance types currently.
- Requires at least 10GB of disk space. Ideally you should do around 25GB to leave room for growth, software installation and checking out mports and src as needed.
- MidnightBSD been run on instances as small as a t2.nano. We recommend at least a t2.micro though.
Setting up IPv6
Install the dual-dhclient from mports. It will also install the ISC DHCP client which is needed for IPv6. Make sure it's built with IPv6 support!!!!
Make sure your /etc/rc.conf has the following:
# EC2 uses DHCP; the network interface appears as xn0.
