Understanding IP Addressing and CIDR Charts

how to about ip addressing and cidr prefixes

Understanding IP Addressing and CIDR Charts Every device connected to the Internet needs to have an identifier. Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are the numerical addresses used to identify a particular piece of hardware connected to the Internet. The two most common versions of IP in use today are Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses come from finite pools of numbers. For IPv4, this pool is 32-bits (232) in...

IPv6 Address Types

information about ipv6 address types and cidr prefixes

IPv6 has three types of addresses: Unicast: An IPv6 unicast address is used to identify a single interface. Packets sent to a unicast address are delivered to that specific interface. Anycast: IPv6 anycast addresses identify groups of interfaces, which typically belong to different nodes. Packets destined to an anycast address are sent to the nearest interface in the group, as determined by the active routing protocols. Multicast: An IPv6 a multicast address also identifies a group of interfaces, again typically belonging to different...
