everyone, I have been reading a little on ipv6, can anyone tell me what you need to an Ipv6 host and a ipv4 host to see each other, as I believe they cannot talk directly, Or is there nothing that would make them communicate ?

You need same version for hosts to talk.

However, if you have lets say ipv6 hosts on an ipv4 network, you can configure ipv6 to be tunneled in ipv4.

Hi There

Can you tell me how ipv6 is tunneled in ipv4, does each different ipv6 adresses have to be tunneled in a different ipv4 address, or can 1 ipv4 address tunnel many ipv6 addresses?

please explain
