Issue Details

I am creating an application that uses the Internet Protocol, I intend to use the sixth generation of Internet Protocol (IPv6). Does LabWindows™/CVI support that version?


LabWindows™/CVI does not support IPv6. The fourth generation of Internet Protocol (IPv4) is the latest version supported by LabWindows™/CVI.  

Additional Information

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 IPv4 generation.
