|Represents an IPv6 network address:
octets contents encoding
1-16 IPv6 address network-byte order
17-20 scope identifier network-byte order
The corresponding InetAddressType value is ipv6(2).
The scope identifier (bytes 17-20) MUST NOT be present
for global IPv6 addresses. For non-global IPv6 addresses
(e.g. link-local or site-local addresses), the scope
identifier MUST always be present. It contains a link
identifier for link-local and a site identifier for
site-local IPv6 addresses.
The scope identifier MUST disambiguate identical address
values. For link-local addresses, the scope identifier will
typically be the interface index (ifIndex as defined in the
IF-MIB, RFC 2233) of the interface on which the address is
The scope identifier may contain the special value 0
which refers to the default scope. The default scope
may be used in cases where the valid scope identifier
is not known (e.g., a management application needs to
write a site-local StationIdIPv6 address without
knowing the site identifier value). The default scope
SHOULD NOT be used as an easy way out in cases where
the scope identifier for a non-global IPv6 is known.
