Family guy, IT professional and geek. Developing for a living (and having fun at the same time), mainly in Javascript, Java and Perl, and mainly related to network and systems management. My wife and I got 4 kids in various stages of deployment (ranging from daycare age to fully deployed+moved out). On rare occassions I do spend a little time coding just for fun.

Thanks for listening to the story of my life.

comment Best practice for picking convenient IPv6 addresses for a few hosts on an isolated LAN
Ok, Tom's solution contained more info but this one were more spot on the final thing I was looking for. (But why does not this site allow me to accept both Tom's and Cheekaleak's answers? In this case I would consider that warranted!)

comment Best practice for picking convenient IPv6 addresses for a few hosts on an isolated LAN
Ok, so if I got a bunch of hosts, I could just give them IP addresses fc00:1:1::1, fc00:1:1::2, fc00:1:1::3 and so on (A yes on this and I'll definitively accept Tom O'Connors answer above)? Would be pretty slim IP-addresses, at least by IPv6 standards! And yes, a DHCPv6 server would do wonders for quickly configuring networks even on ad-hoc networks like these. (Edit: Ok, Cheekaleek confirmed the IP-addresses I were considering...)

comment Best practice for picking convenient IPv6 addresses for a few hosts on an isolated LAN
Autoconfiguration works and IPv6 have some nice support for broadcasts/multicasts so you can detect all other autoconfigured interfaces on the same LAN. The real solution for running an app on a local IPv6 LAN probably goes along those lines. However, the applications I have in mind probably don't have any LAN autodiscovery built in and autoconfiguration has an ability to generate very, very messy IPv6 addresses (but they are unique, though).

answered How are IP-based rules (eg, bans/filters) affected once IPv6 becomes the standard?
