Actually the next version of IPV4 is IPv6. There were some problem occurring with IPv4 so Ipv6 was developed to get rid of those problem. Actually there are some other differences between Ipv4 and Ipv6 and one of which is related to your question. The addresses are 16 bytes in length in Ipv6 whereas for Ipv4 it is 4 bytes in length. The Ipv4 version can be configured manually or you can also configure through DHCP while you don’t have to configure IPv6 manually or by DHCP as it does not require it. Also the header includes options in the IPv4 version whereas the optional data is supported as extension headers in IPv6 version.

These are the basic  differences between the versions and I hope that I answered your question.

If you still have any queries then feel free to ask me here or pm me.

The use or the application of the newer version of the protocol won’t occur all at the same time because of the importance of the Internet Protocol and because of the effect of the modifications done in IPv6. And because of this it is necessary to convert from IPv4 to IPv6. And this action involves thorough planning. It was expected that the migration process from IPv4 to IPv6 will take many years.

The version 6 of the Internet Protocol or the IPv6 is backward compatible with IPv4. That is if special techniques are implemented. For example, you can use “tunneling” to enable the communication between “islands” of IPv6 devices that are linked using IPv4 networks. A scheme was created to support IPv4/IPv6 compatibility to permit the embedding of IPv4 addresses inside the IPv6 address assembly. This technique is done by placing the standard IPv4 addresses in a special IPv6 format so that they can still be identified by particular IPv6 devices as IPv4 addresses.

Hello Techyv experts, your explanations were very commendable moreover agreeable. I have known limitations of IPv4 and IPv6 and I have learnt how to manage IP addressing and also configuring an IP address. Both of you have given excellent performing solutions. With your post I have obtained ideas that the switch from IPv4 to IPv6 is much less dramatic otherwise, frightening than the Y2K transition was. It is a good quality techno trivia issue to be aware of, but there is no risk of me losing access to the Internet because of the IP addressing issues. My computer life should be mostly uninterrupted because of the IPv4-to-IPv6 transition. Just get used to saying ‘IPv6’ out loud as a matter of usual computer life. Thanks guys one more time.
