Re: Windows Vista- IPv6 in ipv4 network

The latest release of the Windows operation system code named "Vista" supports both IPv4 and IPv6 while favoring the later.IPv6 Services can be provided over an IPv4 backbone by using tunnels.

For more information on enabling IPv6 in IPv4 networks by using tunnels refer:

Hello,

The only draw back of this is that you will start seeing multicast traffic on the LAN. This is the way IPv6 advertise hosts on the LAN via ICMPv6. If you don't need this multicast to circulate on the LAN you can just uncheck IPv6 from the LAN interface.

Hope this helps,

Appreciate your rating,

Regards,
