Whack whacking and IPv6...

I saw this in a forum and had to look it up. As hard as it is to believe, the following is true.

Quote: IPv6 Address Nomenclature Used for a UNC Path

Follow these steps when specifying a literal IPv6 address in a UNC path:

Replace any colon ":" characters with a dash "-" character.

Append the text "" to the IP address.

For example, the nomenclature for a URI that points to a file share on a computer with the IPv6 address 2001:DB8:2a:1005:230:48ff:fe73:989d would be:

\\\<sharename> Where <sharename> is the name of the file share on the target computer.
