IPv6-Converter 1.0


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 "[]".
