Is there memorable IPv6 address?

I often use 2600:: to test IPv6 connectivity, and I remember Google DNS was 2460:4860:4860::8888

Of course, most IP addresses are not easy to remember, so what are the best IPv6 addresses to remember?

    ::1/128 localhost
    100::/64 discard

  • 2620:0:1cfe:face:b00c::3

  • 2a09::
    dns.sb

    I just mirror my IPv4 address in the V6.

    Ex: If my IPv4 address was 23.184.48.XXX

    Then I may make my IPv6 for the same server/service: 2602:fc24:059a:3051:23:184:48:XXX

    Just makes it easier to identify things.

    Otherwise it's dead boobs, beef cafe and babe(s).

    Oh, shit. That's one hell of weird combination of fetishes.

    Different strokes, different folks.

  • usually, one of these :

    • b00b:b00b
    • beda:beda:beda
    • c001:c001
    • dead:b00b

    You can even mix stuff to get a bit of obfuscation (sort of).

    2602:fc24:059a:3051::23.184.48.xxx

    which is equivalent to

    2602:fc24:59a:3051::17b8:30yy

    Obtain your own IPv6 prefix from your local RIR/LIR and use it on all your networks and devices.
    Sooner or later you will remember it. ;)

    I used to use ::face or ::cafe

  • I like :b00b or :69. They hold a special place in my heart.

    Facebook engineers used xxxx::face:dead during their last global outage for BGP routing test...

  • Azayaka_MiraiAzayaka_Mirai Member, Provider

    Personally I use :ae86:: for my drifting network.

  • I prefer ::b1g:b00b:babe:cafe

    For a single VPS with no containers or nested VMs on it, I usually just use ::1 of whatever /64 range the provider gives me.

    2a09::
    dns.sb

    Interestingly I was so close to buying that domain back when I bought d.sb... Glad to see someone (@xTom I guess) did something useful with it. I ended up getting dns.tg as renewal is cheaper.

  • It is one of the greatest excuses to avoid ipv6 - poor readability. And also,there is no ROI in ipv6.

    Hi D,
    Nice domain

    Not IPv6 but one of my servers used to have the IP 66.79.179.179 and I still miss that sometimes. I can't remember exactly which host that was (maybe DedicatedBox.net?) but they used the DCS data center in San Jose which I don't think even exists any more.

    This is literally why DNS exists.

    @bsh said: Nice domain

    Thanks!

  • Honestly, I'm more off a b00b person but I end up with a55 at times. Normally I just assign my own prefixes to my VPSs so I've ended up remembering the subnet, trying to SSH into a server gones something like:

    Tries ::3 nope wrong one
    Tries ::5 yep got it

    The best way to remember is to just use an FQDN if possible lol, if that's not an option, much easier to ping6 srv2.dummy.net. :)

    Yes, semicolons are so hard to read. It's just nuts.

    He was being ironic. It seems that some people don't seem to acknowledge that AAAA records actually exist.

    That cafe rejects you, no g's allowed.
