This video provides covers the difference between an IPv4 address and an IPv6 address and how the eight fields of sixteen bits each are broken up and used so you can easily understand the IPv6 addressing scheme.
- [Instructor] So let's jump right in to IPv6 addresses…and take a look at the different types…of addresses in this section.…First, we have some comparisons with IP version four…just to make you feel comfortable.…Link-local is used though with IPv6…unlike in IP version four.…This is equivalent to what's called…the APIPA addresses we discussed,…automatic private IP addressing from Microsoft.…This is a terrible thing to see in IP version four.…This means your DHCP host didn't get an address.…
However, in IPv6, link-local is used…specifically for your host to talk to your router,…or for routers to communicate with routing protocols.…So we actually get an address called…a link-local on every interface.…Now we also have something called…unique local unicast addresses,…you know, or site-specific.…These are equivalent to our private addresses…in IP version four.…And then lastly, for us to get on to the internet though,…we're going to also have a global address.…
These are referred to as global unicast addresses.…The IP4 equivalent is also called a global address…
