Intrudoction of IPv6 Subnet Mask

Postby guest » Mon Nov 30, 2015 5:27 pm

IPv4 subnet masks are notation like 255.0.0.0, 255.255.0.0 and 255.255.255.0. In IPv6, while we still do subnetting, but the notation is different in two ways. 1. We now write subnets using a slash and a number that denotes the masking, for example IPV6ADDRESS/64 or IPV6ADDRESS/112. When you actually enter in the IPv6 address on a system, that /64 or /112 will convert to a hexadecimal number that’ll be in the middle of the IPv6 Address. So when you see an IPv6 address, while it is really long, it actually includes the Network Address: Subnet: Device IP Address in that long address string.
