I got an IPv6-Subet 1009:2417:25:41::/64 - the first ip should be the gateway - is 1009:2417:25:41::1 right? Can you give me a Site or a tutorial how to get the first 100 Host-IPs? (I think some of them should 1009:2417:25:41::2, 1009:2417:25:41::3, 1009:2417:25:41::4 ...)

Are you sure your IPs start with a 1009::? Maybe 2001::?

Either way, you can use any IP addresses you want, in a way you find appropriate (=easiest to remember).


Will work just fine, although


Are the first 100 addresses. IPv6 addresses are written in hexadecimal.

Just try not to use the EUI-64-like addresses (those with FF FE in the middle of the "right part"), since with some bad luck, you might have a collision with a self-generated address.

It is most likely going to be 2001, 2009 hasn't been assigned yet -… – Epaphus Jan 1 '13 at 17:49
Didn't even look at the assignment list, 2009:: atleast starts with a 001(binary), while 1009:: doesn't. Edited. – mulaz Jan 1 '13 at 17:57
It all depends on your preferences. We use the last 8 bits of an ipv4 address, so if the ipv4 address is, the ipv6 address is 2001:DB8::123 (easier for the admins to remember). – mulaz Jan 1 '13 at 18:50
No my Subnet didn't start with 2009 - I edited the address - for privacy reason ... – nPoday Jan 5 '13 at 14:02
