Type used in the ipv6.ip field of the PRNetAddr structure.


#include <prio.h>

#if defined(_PR_INET6)
   typedef struct in6_addr PRIPv6Addr;
#endif /* defined(_PR_INET6) */


PRIPv6Addr represents a 128-bit IPv6 address. It is equivalent to struct in6_addr in the Berkeley socket interface. PRIPv6Addr is always manipulated as a byte array. Unlike the IPv4 address (a 4-byte unsigned integer) or the port number (a 2-byte unsigned integer), it has no network or host byte order.
