I am interested in hosting multiple services on a single host. Each service (which will all be HTTP for the sake of example) currently uses a private IPv4 address and different ports (e.g. there might be a service at 10.0.0.1:8000, :8001, :8002...) This works just fine, except that it's somewhat inconvenient that I cannot use the well known port.
I'm imagining it would be cool to give each service a unique site-local address and the default port. Then I could dynamically add DNS entries, and suddenly have useful / memorable names (service-1.mydomain.com:80, service-2.mydomain.com:80, ...).
Unfortunately, I'm not able to find much information on how to add additional automatically configured IPv6 addresses. The manpage for the Linux (CentOS 6)
ip tool requires you to specify the address you'd like to add. I'd prefer it to just be automatically selected such as with stateless auto configuration. Is this possible? If not I suppose I can try to implement RFC4319 myself, but this sounds very much like the type of thing that should already exist.
