IPv6 - Internet Protocol Of The Future

IPv6, also known as IP Next Generation, is the internet protocol of the future. The new protocol has a lot of supporters, especially from Asian countries, where the currently available range of IP addresses is beginning to run out.

Windows Server 2008 offers complete support for IPv6 and all of its features out of the box. No additional installation or configuration is necessary. Windows Vista also contains a complete IPv6 stack, allowing these two operating systems to communicate via IPv6.

Installed by default - the Internet Protocol v6 (IPv6)
