Sorry for the Confusion, many times I ask questions that are known by those that have researched it, but not those like me that only know enough to ask questions.
In the near future when IPv6 is being used for New IP adresses, will XP support it?
If I remember correctly, IPv6 has been included with XP since SP2, but it's disabled by default. if you wish to enable the protocol stack, open a command prompt and type:
netsh int ipv6 install
netsh int ipv6 uninstall
I not want to be locked out of other future or updated Comodo Products as Secure DNS, Dragon, EasyVPN (to connect to a link/ IP Address)
I use the term Locked Out in comparison to to IE9 and XP.
By the time Ipv6 is mainstream, there shouldn't be any worries about application compatibility. As I said, it's part of the operating system and is installed and enabled on Vista. Windows 7 and Linux.
I believe Comodo are currently using UltraDNS for their secure DNS servers, but the recently acquired DNS.com, so I imagine there will be changes in the future.
EasyVPN will have to undergo some changes and it uses the ipv4 address block 18.104.22.168/8 which is being reallocated and thus won't be available for that purpose.
Since reading the last of the IPv4 addresses have been assigned, your calculated Quess-timation of when it will start to be adopted ?
Although the ipv4 address space has been all but allocated, don't expect any changes in the near future. The majority of ISPs have been procrastinating over ipv6 for years and most still are. Your best bet wou;d be to contact your ISP and ask about their plans. It's hight likely they'll be moving to something like Large Scale NAT or DS-lite.
I apologize for my random thoughts.
Thought a Hexadecimal numbering system could have been incorporated into IPv4 to increase available IP addresses with minor modifications.
And also allow Businesses and Schools, that use programs that require UIDs (Unique ID Identifier) along with name /alias or email address, to be assigned specific blocks of UIDs from that software company.
Sorry for rambling, sometimes my thoughts slightly tie together but actually are far apart !
There was little point trying to extend the life of ipv4 as it has quite a few limitations. There were a few suggestions floating around in the early 1990s when ipv6 was first being discussed, but the in the end, it's not just about extending the number of available addresses. Ipv6 has a lot of interesting built in functionality.
