User Summary

Obtains hostnames, IPv4 and IPv6 addresses through IPv6 Node Information Queries.

IPv6 Node Information Queries are defined in RFC 4620. There are three useful types of queries:

  • qtype=2: Node Name
  • qtype=3: Node Addresses
  • qtype=4: IPv4 Addresses

Some operating systems (Mac OS X and OpenBSD) return hostnames in response to qtype=4, IPv4 Addresses. In this case, the hostnames are still shown in the "IPv4 addresses" output row, but are prefixed by "(actually hostnames)".

Script Arguments

unittest.run

See the documentation for the unittest library.

Example Usage

nmap -6 <target>
