PittNet (Wired): Enabling and Disabling Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) on PCs


The University has begun enabling support for Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6), which is one of two versions of the Internet Protocol that is used to carry Internet traffic. Every device that is connected to a network and uses the Internet Protocol for communication acquires a unique number known as an IP address.   

The number of available IPv4 addresses will soon be exhausted. In many parts of the world, they have already been exhausted.
