Message-ID: <346A11C1.20463C40@parc.xerox.com> Date: Wed, 12 Nov 1997 12:29:53 PST From: Larry Masinter <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: IPv6 addresses within URLs draft-ietf-ipngwg-aaaa-00.txt proposes another method which would work for including IPv6 addresses: An IPv6 address is represented as a name in the IP6.INT domain by a sequence of nibbles separated by dots with the suffix ".IP6.INT". The sequence of nibbles is encoded in reverse order, i.e. the low-order nibble is encoded first, followed by the next low-order nibble and so on. Each nibble is represented by a hexadecimal digit. For example, the inverse lookup domain name corresponding to the address 4321:0:1:7:3:4:567:89ab would be b.a.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.0.0.3.0.0.0.7.0.0.0.1.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1.2.3.4.IP6.INT.
