Issue Details

Does LabVIEW and/or the Internet Toolkit for LabVIEW support Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) or Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6)?


LabVIEW only supports IPv4. National Instruments will continue to monitor the demand for IPv6 and may add support for this technology to future releases of our products.

IPv6 is short for Internet Protocol version 6 and is the next generation protocol designed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to replace the current version which is IPv4.

For more information about these two versions of Internet Protocol and how their packets are structured, please see the related links section below.
