IPv6 to IPv4 calculator

What is IPv6?

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a version of the Internet Protocol (IP) that is designed to replace Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4).
The Internet operates by transferring data in small packets that are routed across networks as specified by an international communications protocol known as the Internet Protocol.
Each data packet contains two numeric addresses that are the packet’s origin/destination devices. Since 1981, IPv4 has been used version of the Internet Protocol, and it is currently the foundation for most Internet connections.
The Internet’s growth has created a need for more addresses than IPv4 can offer.
IPv6 allows approximately 340 undecillion addresses, but switching from IPv4 to IPv6 may be a difficult process.

    If you don’t need IPv6 on your system, you can change default TCP/IP protocol from IPv6 to IPv4 win Windows. Run the following command:

    %windir%\system32\REG.EXE ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters /v DisabledComponents /t REG_DWORD /d 0x20 /f

    This tool does the opposite of what the page title says. It offers to convert from 4 to 6. The title says from 6 to 4.
