its been quite a some time that i have started thinking abt switching to ipv6 frm ipv4.... and finally im into configuring an ipv6 dhcp server...
as i was not that good at ipv6... wat i did was to convert the ipv4 addresses to ipv6 using a kool sexy tool available with Red Hat Enterprise editions... 'ipv6calc'
and here it goes...
i need to conver the ipv4 address 172.24.0.7 to ipv6... lets do it now..
$ipv6calc --in ipv4addr 172.24.0.7 --action conv6to4 --out ipv6addr
it will output the ipv6 equivalent of 172.24.0.7
and it will be..
suppose u want to convert this ipv6 address back to ipv4...
here it goes...
$ipv6calc --in ipv6addr 2002:ac18:7:: --action conv6to4 --out ipv4addr
have happy conversions..! :d
