TOPIC: Does old hardware have to be to not support IPv6?

Re: Does old hardware have to be to not support IPv6? 7 years 7 months ago #37624

@routik

I was trying it in Windows and not in Linux.


Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\a.kumar>ping::1
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

C:\Documents and Settings\a.kumar>ping ::1
Ping request could not find host ::1. Please check the name and try again.

C:\Documents and Settings\a.kumar>

First things first. There's a space between the syntax ping and the '::!' bit (read without quotation marks).
Next_virus, seeing your post, looks like you did not add the space. Try it with the space.

For the rest, I tried it on Windows 7. Haven't tried it on any other operating systems, including Windows XP. But it would be a nice idea to look up any other alternatives for those OS as well.

Addendum:

XP might need a install of the IPv6 protocol. In "My network places" select properties and on the network card click again on Properties -> Install -> Protocol -> IPv6.
You can also do it from the command line with the instruction 'netsh interface ipv6 install' (without the quotation marks)

Thanks Arini...

I was using it on XP. Few months back (3/5 months)someone has posted a link to test whether a machine supports IP6 or not. I was trying to find that link, but due to shortage of time, I will search and post that link in this forum. In the mean time I will be thankful if someone can find and paste that link over here.

saw this article but have not tried it yet on XP to see if it works. www.ghacks.net/2011/02/06/how-to-enable-ipv6-on-windows-xp/
