IPv6-Converter 1.0

09/19/15

This tool converts an IPv6 address so that it can be used to access an UNC or HTTP resource.

This is necessary since an IPv6 address contains multiple colons ":", which would cause problems if you would access an URL or a share the same way as you used to with IPv4 addresses. This is how it works:

  1. First it checks if the entered IPv6 address is valid.
  2. Then it converts it to ether the UNC or HTTP IPv6-format:
    • UNC
      1. All colon ":" characters are replaced with dash "-" characters.
      2. ".ipv6-literal.net" is appended to the IP address.
    • HTTP
      1. The IP address is enclosed in square brackets "[]".
