strang IPv6 addresses - what do they translate to?
Posted on 2011-10-27
I'm looking at a listing of information that shows IP addresses and port numbers for several services running on a machine. Most of them look like normal IPv4 addresses, but some of the other ones look rather strange. I asked a buddy what they were and he said they were probably some IPv6 shorthand addresses.
[::] - he said this one was a loop back address (correct?)
[::1] - he didn't know what this was
*:* - he didn't know what this was either
As I'm importing this information into a database and it won't go into the current schema, I need to know what the replacement IPv4 addresses would look like.
