what is the difference between an IPv4 address and an IPv6 address?
Posted on 2011-03-06
While engaging in some troubleshooting of two wireless laptops which is still ongoing, there was reference being made to IPv4 addresses and IPv6 addresses. What exactly is the difference or differences between these two? To be honest, I never really noticed any mention of IPv6 address being made until Windows Vista and Windows 7 came along. Therefore, I assume this is probably some kind of new internet protocol.
Any clarification on this will be appreciated.
