IPv6

IPv6 was developed to substitute IPv4, as it was expected to run out of addresses.

IPv6 Address

An IPv6 uses 128 bits.

While IPV4 is represented by decimal numbers, IPv6 uses hexadecimal numbers.

There are 8 blocks of hexadecimal numbers, representing each one 16 bits. Each block is separated using colons (:).

Example of IPv6 address:

2001:0:9d38:6ab8:1c48:3a1c:a95a:b1c2

I studied Computer Science at University of Salamanca. Since then, I have been working first as developer and then as SAP consutant. This blog is about problems I dealt when using computers, and more important, the solutions I found. Whenever I am on an issue and suddenlly I have a flash that leads me to a solution, I document my discoveries in a post.
