  • Using ipv6

    Hi People,

    How do we quickly workout that our ipv6 is correct.

    In the olden days a quick glance would tell me that it was in the wrong subnet or ips don't match.

    What would i do now when i am told an ip is 2013:4567:0000:CDEF::AD:0000 and i want to check it is correct ?

    surely not online calculators ?

    A very good question and I for one shall be using online or standalone calculators to make sure I get it right. With 340,282,366,920,938,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000 odd addresses available (or more than a trillion addresses per square centimeter of surface on the planet) I don't think I want to make an error when dealing with the numbers involved.

    I have had a quick for online calculators and there seems to be a wide variety. If you find one you think is particularly good, please link to it here.
