  1. A little clarification on IPv4 versus IPv6. The typical display of the IPv4 is dotted decimal octet to be human friendly; as indicated the IPv6 is typically displayed as hexadecimal, not truly alphanumeric. Also in IPv6 the change from dotted decimal octet to colon separated hexadecimal of four values is mainly to make it easier for humans to deal with. The bigger difference is that the IPv4 address is a 32 bit address capable of representing 4,294,967,295 different values; IPv6 is a 128 bit address capable of 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 values. Displaying those numbers in reasonable format is the reason for directly expressing the value as hexadecimal instead of just decimal.
