Overview

This module provides some data types aliases (introduced in Puppet 4.4) for working with IP addresses.

Usage

This module provides some data types aliases which can be used to simplify type checking in your Puppet 4.4+ compatible code. The most common aliases are likely to be IP::Address, IP::Address::V4, and IP::Address::V6.

IP::Address

The IP::Address alias will match any IP address, including both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. It will match them either with or without an address prefix as used in CIDR format IPv4 addresses.

Examples

'127.0.0.1' =~ IP::Address                                # true
'8.8.4.4' =~ IP::Address                                  # true
'10.1.240.4/24' =~ IP::Address                            # true
'52.10.10.141' =~ IP::Address                             # true
'192.168.1' =~ IP::Address                                # false
'FEDC:BA98:7654:3210:FEDC:BA98:7654:3210' =~ IP::Address  # true
'FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:101' =~ IP::Address                     # true
'FF01::101' =~ IP::Address                                # true
'FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:101/32' =~ IP::Address                  # true
'FF01::101/60' =~ IP::Address                             # true
'::' =~ IP::Address                                       # true
'12AB::CD30:192.168.0.1' =~ IP::Address                   # true

IP::Address::V4

The IP::Address::V4 alias will match any string consisting of an IPv4 address in the quad-dotted decimal format, with or without a CIDR prefix. It will not match any abbreviated form (e.g., 192.168.1) because these are poorly documented and inconsistently supported.

Examples

'127.0.0.1' =~ IP::Address::V4                                # true
'8.8.4.4' =~ IP::Address::V4                                  # true
'10.1.240.4/24' =~ IP::Address::V4                            # true
'52.10.10.141' =~ IP::Address::V4                             # true
'192.168.1' =~ IP::Address::V4                                # false
'FEDC:BA98:7654:3210:FEDC:BA98:7654:3210' =~ IP::Address::V4  # false
'12AB::CD30:192.168.0.1' =~ IP::Address::V4                   # false

IP::Address::V6

The IP::Address::V6 alias will match any string consistenting of an IPv6 address in any of the documented formats in RFC 2373, with or without an address prefix.

Examples

'127.0.0.1' =~ IP::Address::V6                                # false
'10.1.240.4/24' =~ IP::Address::V6                            # true
'FEDC:BA98:7654:3210:FEDC:BA98:7654:3210' =~ IP::Address::V6  # true
'FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:101' =~ IP::Address::V6                     # true
'FF01::101' =~ IP::Address::V6                                # true
'FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:101/32' =~ IP::Address::V6                  # true
'FF01::101/60' =~ IP::Address::V6                             # true
'::' =~ IP::Address::V6                                       # true
'12AB::CD30:192.168.0.1' =~ IP::Address::V6                   # true

Reference

IP::Address

The IP::Address alias will match any IP address, including both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. It will match them either with or without an address prefix as used in CIDR format IPv4 addresses.

IP::Address::V4

The IP::Address::V4 alias will match any string consisting of an IPv4 address in the quad-dotted decimal format, with or without a CIDR prefix. It will not match any abbreviated form (e.g., 192.168.1) because these are poorly documented and inconsistently supported.

IP::Address::V6

The IP::Address::V6 alias will match any string consistenting of an IPv6 address in any of the documented formats in RFC 2373, with or without an address prefix.

IP::Address::NoSubnet

The IP::Address::NoSubnet alias will match the same things as the IP::Address alias, except it will not match an address that includes an address prefix (e.g., it will match 192.168.0.6 but not 192.168.0.6/24).

IP::Address::V4::CIDR

The IP::Address::V4::CIDR alias will match an IPv4 address in the CIDR format. It will only match if the address contains an address prefix (e.g., it will match 192.168.0.6/24 but not 192.168.0.6).

IP::Address::V4::NoSubnet

The IP::Address::V4::NoSubnet alias will match an IPv4 address only if the address does not contain an address prefix (e.g., it will match 192.168.0.6 but not 192.168.0.6/24).

IP::Address::V6::Full

The IP::Address::V6::Full alias will match an IPv6 address formatted in the "preferred form" as documented in section 2.2.1 of RFC 2373, with or without an address prefix as documented in section 2.3 of RFC 2373.

IP::Address::V6::Compressed

The IP::Address::V6::Compressed alias will match an IPv6 address which may contain :: used to compress zeros as documented in section 2.2.2 of RFC 2373. It will match addresses with or without an address prefix as documented in section 2.3 of RFC 2373.

IP::Address::V6::Alternative

The IP::Address::V6::Alternative alias will match an IPv6 address formatted in the "alternative form" allowing for representing the last two 16-bit pieces of the address with a quad-dotted decimal, as documented in section 2.2.1 of RFC 2373. It will match addresses with or without an address prefix as documented in section 2.3 of RFC 2373.

IP::Address::V6::NoSubnet::Full

The IP::Address::V6::NoSubnet::Full alias will match an IPv6 address formatted in the "preferred form" as documented in section 2.2.1 of RFC 2373. It will not match addresses with address prefix as documented in section 2.3 of RFC 2373.

IP::Address::V6::NoSubnet::Compressed

The IP::Address::V6::NoSubnet::Compressed alias will match an IPv6 address which may contain :: used to compress zeros as documented in section 2.2.2 of RFC 2373. It will only match addresses without an address prefix as documented in section 2.3 of RFC 2373.

IP::Address::V6::Alternative

The IP::Address::V6::Alternative alias will match an IPv6 address formatted in the "alternative form" allowing for representing the last two 16-bit pieces of the address with a quad-dotted decimal, as documented in section 2.2.1 of RFC 2373. It will only match addresses without an address prefix as documented in section 2.3 of RFC 2373.
