    in ipv4 ip address is assigned by ourselves or dhcp server ...
    in ipv6 there is an auto config mechanism and by utilizing MAC address , ip address is
    generated(produced) .

    and relating to note i read : "this(utilizing MAC address) would make tracking easier" , how ?

    because of MAC address doesn't change and unique ?
