3.6.3. IPv4-mapped IPv6 address Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

When IPv4 packets are received by a system that uses IPv6 wildcard listen sockets, the client addresses may show as IPv4-mapped IPv6 addresses. See Section 3.7.10. BindV6Only for more info about this feature and how to control IPv4 mapped IPv6 addresses.
Configuring the operating system or Radiator to not use IPv4-mapped IPv6 addresses allows you to keep IPv4 and IPv6 clearly separate.
