    Hi,

    it is predicted that, by 2011 ,IPV4 will be used up. then we have to implement ipv6.
    what r the changes dat we might have to do in our networks,for our network to be IPV6 compatible?

    Your network? Possibly very little... depends on your current network infrastructure. But to be able to connect to the outside world? Considering the Internet runs on IPv4, it'll be a long while before it's required to go IPv6.

    There are plenty of articles on the Internet regarding migration and co-existence of IPv4 and IPv6, including tunneling/encapsulation methods. Google them up! :)

    i thought it was backwards compatible and was already partly in use ?

    It is already in use... Vista installs it by default.

    But if it was backwards compatible... there'd be no need for tunneling methods.

    IPv5 was an experimental protocol, called Stream Protocol (ST), never released publicly. Come on, where's your Google skills? :biggrin heeheehee

    EDIT: Fergie beat me by // that much...
