IPv6 Subnetting Practice Questions

Which of the following is a valid IPv6 address. Present your answer simply as the letter of the valid addres (e.g. ‘A’).
A 2001:1075e::4748
B 2001:3916:2ce4:c6fd:a535:506:7c5d:caf7
C 2001:2401:3e4:d159:25e:a283:5e63:bdea:a731
D 2001:139d:9e78:97cf:4bd4:329a

IPv6 is the long term solution to the Internet running out of IPv4 addresses. We’ll all have to learn how to network with IPv6 sooner or later.

The nice thing about IPv6 is that subnetting is a lot easier – best practice is to always use a /64 subnet mask for all networks with end hosts. This can lead to a lot of ‘wasted’ addresses, but the IPv6 address space is so large that it isn’t a concern.

These questions should help familiarize you with the IPv6 world and networking with IPv6. Read more in our how to subnet IPv6 guide.
