IPv6-addresses are 128bit (16 octets) long. Notation is hexadecimal, seperated with a colon each four nibbles. Leading zeros can be omitted per group; as may be one suite of zero-groups. Prefixes are denoted - like in IPv4 - by a slash following the number of relevant bits. Unlike IPv4 there are no broadcast-addresses available in IPv6. All addresses starting with FF are multicast-addresses. Due to unresolved questions concerning anycast, there's only one anycast-address defined yet. For more details, please have a look at
the associated RFCs.

IPv6 unicast addresses:
H x x x: x x x x: x x x x: x x x x: x x x x: x x x x: x x x x: x x x x
global routing prefix (H=001x) subnet ID interface ID

IPv6 multicast addresses:

S: scope
F: flags
multicast group ID
