Cheatsheet IPV6

  • Ping
    User ping6 instead of ping. Generally, network tools for ipv4 are suffixed with a 6 at the end.

  • SSH
    Use ssh with -6 option:
    Example: ssh -6 toto@2001:4b98:dd0:51:216:3eff:feb6:5267

  • An ipv6 address in a browser with a port
    Surround the address with square brackets. Example: http://[2001:4b98:dd0:51:216:3eff:feb6:5267]:8080 for the 8080 port

  • DNS Record
    Use a AAAA entry instead of A
    Example: @ 10800 IN AAAA 2001:4b98:dd0:51:216:3eff:feb6:5267
