Today I was reading my Exam Cram 2 book when I had a question.
In IPV4 you have IP address grouped into classes A,B,C,D,E and a Subnet mask which defines which part of the ip adress refer to the network adress and which refer to the node address. The IPV4 address is broken into 4 sets of 8 bits to eaquel somehing like this 127.0.0.1
127.0 being the network and 0.1 being the node address on a class C network.
Now my question is this....on a IPV6 network what is the subnet mask going to look like ? I have yet to encounter a IPV6 IP address.
I see what the IPV6 ip address looks like but what about the subnet mask.
Will is look similer to 255.255.255.0 ?
