Link-local IPv6

4 posts in this topic

Hello! Is there anyway to understand the Link-local IPv6, more exactly to read it as a normal IP address?

Thanks in advance!

Define "normal IP address". 


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

IPv6 link-local addresses are a special scope of address which can be used only within the context of a single layer two domain

1.       The left-most 'prefix length' bits of the address are those of the link-local prefix.

 

2.       The bits in the address to the right of the link-local prefix are set to all zeroes.

 

3.       If the length of the interface identifier is N bits, the right-most N bits of the address are replaced by the interface identifier.
