Dear BC Members & Staff,

 

I want to make an IPv6 Addressing Scheme.

I have found out that fc00::/7 is the Private Range for IPv6.

But I don't know how to use it.

 

In IPv4, for example, you have 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.2.1

So for IPv6, is it correct to think of fc01::/7 and fc02::/7 and fc03::/7 ???

 

Regards,

Where/who are you obtaining IPv6 from? That will dictate the block.

I don't really understand your question.

What I want to know is, in IPv4 you have 172.16.0.0 and 172.16.1.0 and 172.16.2.0 and so on.

How must I translate this to IPv6??

 

I already have an IPv4 Addressing Scheme using a Subnet Mask of 255.255.0.0 (/16)

Are you looking for a IPv4 to IPv6 calculator? If so, try here.   If you need help subnetting a IPv6 out, since it's different then IPv4, see here. I thought you wanted to assign devices on your network IPv6 addresses.

According to RFC 3849, 2001:DB8::/32 is reserved for Documentation purposes.

https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3849

https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3849.txt

 

So 2001:DB8::/32 is also a Private Range??
