My dedicated server was provisioned with a hypervisor at my request. So, the first thing I setup after I got my dedicated server (dedi, from here on out) was to setup networking on it and run a quick pfSense firewall, then install FRR module and start a BGP peering session with my provider to announce my prefixes. From there I made a tunnel with wireguard to connect the dedicated server to my home, so I can manage it centrally.
Unfortunately, the IPv6 blend does not include cogent, so my IPv6 range is currently unreachable on cogent. I am working on fixing that right now and becoming multi-homed for IPv6 for full connectivity.
Need to expand on this later but those were the first steps.
