In Microsoft Windows operating systems, IPv4 addresses are valid location identifiers in Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) path names. However, the colon (;) is an illegal character in a UNC path name. Thus, the use of IPv6 addresses is also illegal in UNC names. For this reason, Microsoft implemented a transcription algorithm to represent an IPv6 address in the form of a domain name that can be used in UNC paths. For this purpose, Microsoft registered and reserved the second-level domain ipv6-literal.net on the Internet. IPv6 addresses are transcribed as a hostname or subdomain name within this name space, in the following fashion:
2001:db8:85a3:8d3:1319:8a2e:370:7348
is written as 
2001-db8-85a3-8d3-1319-8a2e-370-7348.ipv6-literal.net
This notation is automatically resolved by Microsoft software without any queries to DNS name servers. If the IPv6 address contains a zone index, it is appended to the address portion after an "s" character:
Example:
fe80--1s4.ipv6-literal.net
The correct UNC path for
\\fe80::bce9:e471:aa9d:6d00%15\ofcscan
is written as
\\fe80--bce9-e471-aa9d-6d00%15.ipv6-literal.net\ofcscan
