Using common linux utilities over IPV6

I've needed to test a variety of network architectures and access-lists over the past couple of weeks.  Most linux utilities require some sort of ipv6 flag on the command-line which has been constantly challenging my muscle memory.

 

IPv6 enabled sites used for testing:

www.kame.net (if you see the swimming turtle you are accessing the site with ipv6)

2001:4860:4860::8888 (google's ipv6 equivalent of 8.8.8.8)

scanme.nmap.org (2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:fe93:cd19 host to portscan)

facebook.com (2a03:2880:2110:df07:face:b00c:0:1)

six.use.io (2600:3c02::f03c:91ff:fedf:21c3) 

 

DNS lookups:

dig -6 @2001:4860:4860::8888 facebook.com AAAA

or 

dig -6 @2001:4860:4860::8888 facebook.com AAAA +short

snmpwalk:

snmpwalk -v2c -c public udp6:[2001:0db8:85a3:0:0:8a2e:0370:99]:161 .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.109.1.1.1.1.4

ping/traceroute:

ping6 2001:0db8:85a3:0:0:8a2e:0370:99

traceroute6 2001:0db8:85a3:0:0:8a2e:0370:99

web browsing:

lynx http://\[2a03:2880:2110:df07:face:b00c:0:1\]

nmap:

nmap -sV -6 2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:fe93:cd19

telnet:

telnet 2a03:2880:2110:df07:face:b00c:0:1 80

ssh:

ssh 2a03:2880:2110:df07:face:b00c:0:1
