I know this question is for entry level users. That I am. New to this world and finding it very interesting. I have done some research on IPv4 and how to convert IP addresses to binary and vice versa. I also understand that IPv6 contains 4 x the amount of IPv4 binary per section. I just need to thoroughly understand how it works? any help will be appreciated.
The Wikipedia Article on IP Addresses actually has a nice image showing exactly that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ipv6_address.svg
Hope that helps.
