I was demo'ing a few ipv6 address format and one tip that I would like to point out. If you every wanted to generate a map ipv4 hex-address and using the 32bit address just use the ping6 & specify your 32bit address and the OS will convert it to a map hex decimal value.
Take the ipv4 32bit address of 10.10.80.1 , how do we find the hex-decimal value?
PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) 2001:db8:99:101:74cd:bd15:c861:9abf --> 2001::a0a:5001
a0a5001 would our hex-decimal for 10 10 80 1. So if you ever have a exam and one of the question is to transpose a 32bit ipv4 into the hex equal, this simple tip could speed up the conversion.
btw this works under macosx, linux , bsd, and cisco IOS/IOS-XR
