Quote from: cholzhauer on August 05, 2010, 07:08:20 PMI know it works via DNS, because if the server has a IPv6 address in DNS, and the host only has IPv6, I can connect to it.
Quote from: wiki (click for article)Literal IPv6 addresses in UNC path namesIn Microsoft Windows operating systems, IP addresses are also allowed in Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) path names. Since the colon is an illegal character in a UNC path name, the use of IPv6 addresses is also illegal in UNC names. For this reason, Microsoft has registered a second-level Internet domain, ipv6-literal.net, as a means to facilitate symbolic substitution. IPv6 addresses may be transcribed in the following fashion: 2001:0db8:85a3:08d3:1319:8a2e:0370:7348is written as 2001-db8-85a3-8d3-1319-8a2e-370-7348.ipv6-literal.netThis notation is automatically resolved by Microsoft software without DNS queries to any name servers. If the IPv6 address contains a zone index, it is appended to the address portion after an 's' character: fe80--1s4.ipv6-literal.net
