  • well ipv6 is a protocol. The software microsoft people are talking about is an interpreter or converter to convert ipv6 addressing scheme to present worlds ipv4 addressing scheme or vice-versa. Hence Microsoft people are certainly not responsible for the protocols working.
    But you certainly can use it for conference XP or anything else.

  • thanx 4 the info. But one thing i can't understand is when  and how is the IPV6 address given. As in normal Lan settings we give the TCP/IP address in the properties while setting up the LAN..

  • hey!
    consider this thing mathematically, IPv6 is nothing but a 128(32 + 32 +32 +32) bit addressing scheme whereas IPv4 is 32(8+8+8+8) bit. Due to success of internet and boom of internet accessing devices, IPv4 was getting exhausted, hence IPv6 is being slowly adopted over the net.

    Converting IPv4 to v6 is not a problem at all.
