As mentioned in the Accessing Instances section, connecting to an instance via IPv6 is preferred over using a Floating IP. Please see the links above to determine if you have IPv6 connectivity (Telus and University of Alberta users are known to have IPv6 connectivity). If you do have IPv6 connectivity, replace "floating_ip_address" with your instance's IPv6 address in the instructions below. To determine your IPv6 addressmake IPv6 addresses more friendly, instances are also given an automated DNS name that maps to your IPv6 address and can be found on your instance's details page under the Metadata section.
