I'm reading about how to configure IPv6 on Ubuntu, I've gotten to the section about Reading IPv6 Addresses and though the first two examples make sense to me, the last one escapes my grasp a bit, as it's been a few years since my last networking class:
How does one convert the third form into the long form?
Here is the example I am having trouble with:
- third form: - 2002::10:0.0.1
- long form: - 2002:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0a00:0001
- canonicalform: - 2002::a00:1
I understand hex so far as instead of ending up with the number ten when you count beyond nine you end up with A, B, C, D, E, and F before incrementing the digit in the next column.
