dealing with a mixed environment of IPv4 and IPv6 nodes is x:x:x:x:x:x:d.d.d.d, where the 'x's are the hexadecimal
values of the six high-order 16-bit pieces of the address, and the
'd's are Hinden
[Page 4] Standards Track RFC 4291
February 2006 IPv6 Addressing Architecture the decimal values of the four low-order 8-bit pieces of
the address (standard IPv4 representation). Examples: 0:0:0:0:0:0:188.8.131.52 0:0:0:0:0:FFFF:184.108.40.206 or in compressed form: ::220.127.116.11 ::FFFF:18.104.22.168 2.3. Text Representation of Address Prefixes The text representation of IPv6 address prefixes is similar
to the way IPv4 address prefixes are written in Classless InterDomain Routing (CIDR) notation [CIDR]. An IPv6 address prefix is represented by the notation: ipv6-address/prefix-length where ipv6-address
listed is an IPv6 address in any of the notations in Section 2.2. prefix-length
the is a decimal value specifying how many of leftmost contiguous bits of the address
comprise the prefix. For example, the following are legal representations of the
