Golang : Validate IPv6 example



Tags : golang ip-addressvalidate-ipv6

This tutorial is an enhancement of previous tutorial on how to determine if a given IP address is version 4 or 6. The govalidator package has a function to validate if a given IP address is of type version 6 or not.

Here you go!

 package main

 import (
 "fmt"
 "github.com/asaskevich/govalidator"
 )

 func main() {

 IP61 := "2001:0db8:0000:0042:0000:8a2e:0370:7334"

 validIP61 := govalidator.IsIPv6(IP61)

 fmt.Printf("%s is a valid IPv6 address : %v \n", IP61, validIP61)

 IP62 := "FE80::0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329"

 validIP62 := govalidator.IsIPv6(IP62)

 fmt.Printf("%s is a valid IPv6 address : %v \n", IP62, validIP62)

 }

Output :

2001:0db8:0000:0042:0000:8a2e:0370:7334 is a valid IPv6 address : true

FE80::0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329 is a valid IPv6 address : true
