Convert IPv6 to Decimal Notation


Hexadecimal Range

Hexadecimal (Base 16) numbers are 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F (0 - F), the range for each hextet will range from 0000 to FFFF. Hextets are described in the next section.

How to Convert IPV6 to Decimal

The process for converting an IPV6 address to decimal, involves the conversion of hexadecimal (Base16) to decimal (Base10). Hexadecimal is used frequently in networking and the conversion of hexadecimal into decimal can prove useful for many applications. Here are the steps to the conversion:

  1. The format of an IPV6 address consists of eight groups of four digits. Each group of four digits is separated by a colon (:). These groups are called hextets For example an IPV6 address 2001:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000.
  2. Converting the IPV6 address involves separately converting each hexadecimal digit to its decimal equivalent. The result of the process is a series of decimal values.
  3. Upon Completion of the conversion the hexadecimal values of the IPV6 address will now be represented as a decimal. Depending if the application requires it the IPV6 address in decimal format makes it easier to work with.

Example: Here is an example to illustrate the successful conversion on an IPV6 hexadecimal address to its corresponding decimal value.

  • IPV6 Addresses (Base 16) - 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334
  • Decimal (Base 10) - 42540766452641154071740215577757643572

Types of IPV6 Addresses:

There are several types of IPV6 addresses each type has its unique use case here is the types as follows:

  • Link Local : Similar to IPV4 private addresses IPV6 link local addresses are used for local network communication. The address of a Link Local can be found inside the network block of FE80::/10.

  • Global Unicast : In IPV4 this type of address would be called the public address, which is the address assigned for internet communication. In IPV6 this type of address is called global unicast address. This address is used when communication is required outside the Local Area Network (LAN).

  • Loopback : The loopback address in IPV6 has the exact same functionality as that to its IPV4 counterpart. But the first bit in the address space ::1/128 in an IPV6 is 1 for the whole address.
