asked on

tunnel adapter local area connection

Just did an IPCONFIG /ALL and saw a bunch of these...what I can gather is that they have something to do with IPV6 but was just wondering in an english answer what they are used for.  

Does having them on your system make it more vulnerable?

Are they created every time you connect to a different network?

IPV6 is the newer protocol used for networks.
As the current IP address which support IPV4 are not able to provide more ip address for users.

At the present time back end network equipment support ipV4.
Slowly there would be a shift towards the use-age of IPV6.

No

If you use DHCP settings, new address will be created when you connect to a
different network.
