So IPV6. I have the basic concept down but am lacking understanding on how the device address is generated. I was under the impression that the IPV6 address was based on the MAC, but that doesn't make sense to me when it comes to a server that has an entire IPV6 subnet on it.
So I know the first 48 is the network address, the next 16 is the subnet address. The last 64 is the device address.
With IPV4 we were able to generate or make a list of ip's for a subnet ie:
I know that IPV /64 is huge and generating an actual IP list would be ridiculous so here is my questions:
Does every IPV6 /64 have the same device addresses? I am assuming so.
What would those addresses be? My ISP lists my usable range from 0000:2 to ffff:ffff:ffff:fffe but how to you know what the ones in between are.
Is there a list somewhere?
I am guessing that it would be similar to IPV4:
And what about when you get to the letter parts?
But for me I would like to be able to see a list or something particularly when it comes to the letter parts.
