I'm very confused about how to address a computer on my local network via ipv6. I am writing a server which is meant to support both ipv4 and ipv6. Now I have don an ifconfig and gotten my ipv4 local ip address, however I get inet6 addr: fe80::224:d7ff:fe3e:db44/64 Scope:Link for the ipv6. From what I have read I cannot use this to address the box on my local network right?
I was, previously, able to configure OpenVZ VMs with only IPv6 addresses, but when configuring a new VM, OpenVZ required that I enter a value for the IPv4 address and, using a dummy address (0.0.0.0, for example), was able to build a new VM. This process worked, but was not ideal, and I would prefer to simply use the single IPv6 address, if possible.
