    IPv6 zone index format

    What defines the format of an IPv6 address zone index? Or maybe in other words, can I address a specific zone index, and if so can I use a familiar format to my system and expect it to be correctly translated on the target system?

    Say I ping a Linux machine on my network with my Windows system (nevermind for a moment I may not be able to map ipv4 addresses):

    Code:
    ping -6 ::ffff:192.168.10.7%1
    ping -6 ::ffff:192.168.10.7%eth1
    Can I use the windows format and it will be correctly translated? Or am I forced to use the Linux format for the zone index? Who's responsible for the translation?

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
