This question already has an answer here:
I'm very confused about how to address a computer on my local network via ipv6. I am writing a server which is meant to support both ipv4 and ipv6. Now I have don an ifconfig and gotten my ipv4 local ip address, however I get
inet6 addr: fe80::224:d7ff:fe3e:db44/64 Scope:Link for the ipv6. From what I have read I cannot use this to address the box on my local network right? I guess I just don't quite understand the whole scoping stuff for ipv6 and if someone could explain it to me like I was 5 that would be great. Will I not be able to address it because of how the network is set up?
Just in case it helps I have a dlink dir-601 as my main router.
