Doh,

I meant the /80 of 1C for interconnects.

xxxx:xxxx:zz::1C:YYYY:1 and :F in a /112

Lasse,

We use /112's – last chazwazza being 65k addresses… Requires little effort in remembering the ranges….  With one end being :1 and the other :F

This leaves more than enough addresses for HSRP/VRRP and all the other things like it.  Also means we can introduce addressing on the link for diagnostics quite easily.

We actually use the /96 of 1C (to mean 1nterConnect) - makes it recognisable to engineering staff.

There is the issue of the pingpong affect, but I'm hoping vendors (if they haven't already) will introduce features to protect against it when (if) they implement RFC4443.

Hi all.


While reading up on IPv6, I've seen numerous places that subnets are now
all /64.

I have even read that subnets defined as /127 are considered harmful.


However while implementing IPv6 in our network, I've encountered several
of our peering partners using /127 or /126 for point-to-point links.


What is the Best Current Practice for this - if there is any?

Would you recommend me to use /64, /126 or /127?

What are the pros and cons?
