reverse A record for IPv6 network?
At present, we put an A record in the reverse zone file for a network,
mapping the network address to the network mask, expressed as a dotted
quad. Something like this:
0.10.162.192.in-addr.arpa. 3000 in a 255.255.255.0.
People find it mildly useful to be able to use dig to get the right
network mask. We do the same thing for subnets within networks.
What, if anything, is the convention with IPv6?
