If I could it would be just fine.
I got only one public IPv4 with each VPS. I've got a IPv6 too but I'm
not easy with IPv6 yet.

The provider (Tilaa) where I rent one of the 2 VPS, the one who may need
2 IPv4, is a bit short about his range of IPv4 and I guess it's not
raisonable to ask for a second IPv4 just for my personal use in case of
studying *BSD and networking stuff, I don't have a professional use here.
