Well, ipv6calc shows me:
ipv6calc --ipv4_to_6to4addr 192.168.1.20
Not that I understand IPV4 to IPV6 conversion or anything, but I'm not
sure if the 2002 at the head of the output is significant or the double
colons at the tail.
I wonder if IPV6 is going to actually happen. I read somewhere in the
past couple of days (might have been a Slashdot post :-/ ) that IPV6 is
"overkill" and some are proposing a reassignment of sorts for IPV4
addresses. Personally, I like the dotted quad notation of IPV4 over
the MAC address like format of IPV6 and I'm still getting used to
seeing adjaceant colons.
