IPv6 i Windows

Recommended Posts

Eftersom det inte finns något internetabonnemang som använder IP v6, för hemanvändare i Sverige, utan användning av IP v6 leder till konverteringar så borde det gå snabbare om IP v6 är inaktiverad, men det är ju möjligt att Windows 7 har något hyss för sig. Däremot så brukar IP v6 vara aktiverad från början både i Vista och Windows 7. Man kan väl säga som så att om man har problem så pröva med att ändra aktiveringen av IP v6 (oavsett vilket läge det är från början).

Citerat från denna sida om IPv6, om varför den ska vara på!

(TechNet Magazine)


HomeGroup in Windows 7 is a new way for computers on home networks to associate with each other and to let family members share documents, pictures, music, videos, and printers. HomeGroup relies on IPv6 connectivity and the Windows Peer-to-Peer Networking Platform on computers running Windows 7 on a single-subnet home network.

"From Microsoft's perspective, IPv6 is a mandatory part of the Windows operating system and it is enabled and included in standard Windows service and application testing during the operating system development process. Because Windows was designed specifically with IPv6 present, Microsoft does not perform any testing to determine the effects of disabling IPv6. If IPv6 is disabled on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, or later versions, some components will not function. Moreover, applications that you might not think are using IPv6such as Remote Assistance, HomeGroup, DirectAccess, and Windows Mailcould be.

Therefore, Microsoft recommends that you leave IPv6 enabled, even if you do not have an IPv6-enabled network, either native or tunneled. By leaving IPv6 enabled, you do not disable IPv6-only applications and services (for example, HomeGroup in Windows 7 and DirectAccess in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are IPv6-only) and your hosts can take advantage of IPv6-enhanced connectivity."


DirectAccess is a key feature in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 that provides remote DirectAccess clients with bidirectional access to intranet resources by using an IPsec-protected connection to a DirectAccess server. DirectAccess leverages end-to-end global IPv6 addressing and connectivity to transparently connect remote computers to an intranet as if they were connected with an Ethernet cable.

DirectAccess clients running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 automatically create a protected and tunneled IPv6 connection to a DirectAccess server running Windows Server 2008 R2 whenever a client determines it is on the Internet.

For more information about DirectAccess, see DirectAccess and the Thin Edge Network, and the resources at microsoft.com/directaccess.
