    Smile Ipv6 link local address and client server application

    Hello Guys,
    I am trying to figure out, if it is possible to have a client-server application working only with link local addresses in ipv6 network.

    1) Most importantly, it is recommended?

    2) Are there any limitations over such applications?

    Re: Ipv6 link local address and client server application

    IPv6 link-local and site-local addresses are called scoped addresses. The Windows Sockets (Winsock) API supports the sin6_scope_id member in the sockaddr_in6 structure for use with scoped addresses. For IPv6 link-local addresses (fe80::/10 prefix), the sin6_scope_id member in the sockaddr_in6 structure is the interface number. For IPv6 site-local addresses (fec0::/10 prefix), the sin6_scope_id member in the sockaddr_in6 structure is a site identifier.

    An example of a link-local IPv6 address on interface #5 is the following:

    fe80::208:74ff:feda:625c%5
