Using IPv6 address formats with Domino® and Notes®

You can use an IPv6 address as a string anywhere that an IPv4 address as a string can be used.

IPv4 addresses with port numbers are supported by the HCL Notes® client and the HCL Domino® Web server in the following format:

IPv6 addresses contain a varying number of colons; therefore, the syntax shown can not be used with IPv6 addresses. To be consistent with a proposed format for Web servers, if the port number is included with an IPv6 address, the address must be enclosed in square-style [ ] brackets.

The following address formats can be used wherever address strings are supported, for example, in Server documents, in the Open Application dialog box, or in the Port Trace dialog box.
