Local DNS - taming IPv6
« on: April 10, 2017, 03:02:38 AM »


I'd like to be able to do reverse-lookup on IPv6 addresses of hosts on my LAN. The Apple iOS boxes are spinning globally routable 'privacy'-type IPv6 addresses for themselves, as the should be, plus the usual link-local ones too. How could I get Lan-internal DNS forward and especially reverse lookup organised? It would be nice if I could set things up to handle all the different IPv6 addresses of each box, I count four global privacy ones per iOS box typically, plus a link-local one.

Could I use MAC addresses as part of the solution?

Ideally I would also be able to set up more than one distinct DNS name for each machine because that is what I do for IPv4 (apart from also having one domain names per I/f with IPv4 addresses eg or and then I could have so perhaps, as well as because that way I can ping a specific i/f, and IP ver, and check the individual address classes too. It's easy enough to do that currently because they are all statically configured and I can do anything I like. God knows whether such a think is even possible.
