Hi Cisco Community !

Re: IPV4 and IPV6 on the same computer

Depends on Operating system, since IPv6 not fully available, people mostly configure IPv4 over IPV6 preferred

 

Some cases may not be the same, if the organization ready with IPv6 and dual-stack available in the environment, they can use IPv6

 

it's all how you designed the network, who handover the IP address on the network layer?

 

make sense ?#

Re: IPV4 and IPV6 on the same computer

Hi,

@balaji.bandi is correct, it depends on the operating system or sometime depend on the application itself.

By default, in Windows, IPv6 is preferred over IPv4. And you may change the behavior by modifying prefixpolicies or registry.
