Asking about IPv6 address
when i type ifconfig, and the output is:
em0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet6 fe80::213:20ff:feac:ddca%em0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
inet 188.8.131.52 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 184.108.40.206
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
I want ask why the bold and the underline output is always started with FE80? even though i change my NIC, it always start with FE80.
Last question, is 213:20ff:feac:ddca%em0 the MAC address of the NIC? Because when I change my NIC, it always change the address too.
does anybody have the reference?
Thank you very much.
waiting for your replied soon.

IPv4 has a similarly reserved range, 169.254.0.0/16.
EDIT: This seems like a decent introduction, Google is your friend: http://www.enterprisenetworkingplane...le.php/3633211
