    cool Installing IPv6 on Windows XP

    IPv6 support is still experimental under Windows XP and the stack has to be enabled manually.

    To enable the Windows XP IPv6 stack:
    • From the Windows desktop press the “start” button.
    • Click on “Control Panel”.
    • Assuming that the Control Panel is in classic view mode, click on “Network Connections”.
    • Right click on the connection that needs to have the IPv6 stack enabled and go to “Properties”
    • On the properties window click on the “Install…” button.
    • On the “Select Network Component Type” window, select the “Protocol” option and then click on the “Add…” button.
    • On the “Select Network Protocol” window select “Microsoft TCP/IP version 6” and then click the “Ok” button.


    The Microsoft IPv6 stack is now enabled for your network connection.

    There is no graphical configuration of IPv6 properties/settings. A command line tool used netsh is used to configure IPv6 for interfaces.

    To add or delete an IPv6 Address:
    • From a windows command line invoke the netsh tool by typing “netsh” and then pressing the enter key.
    • Next change the context of netsh to interface by typing “interface” and press enter.
    • Change the context of the interface to ipv6 mode by typing “ipv6” and pressing enter.
    • The command to add an address has the form of “add address [interface=]<string> [address=]<IPv6 Adress>”

    a. Example: add address interface="Local Area Connection 2" 2001:1945:feed:deef::1

    Deletion can be handled in the same manner by using keyword delete instead of keyword add.

    Hope this helps.

    Nope. in india still the implementation of IPv6 is in the private sector only. If u know the reason behind the creation of IPv6 over IPv4 is the increasing computers on the internet. it is not far tht all IPv4 addresses would be taken up...! IPv4 is a 32 bit address with 4 octates i.e 8bitsx4 fields where as the IPv6 is 128 bit address. 8 group of 4 hexadecimal numbers. imagine a number of ip addresses that IPv6 will have. too many..!
