Windows XP & Windows 2003 Server protcol installation he

I ran the Windows XP command at the Windows 2003 Command Prompt:

IPV6 install

But nothing seem to happen. Is this the correct way to install IP version 6 on a Windows XP & Windows 2003 computer? Any help is appreciated... icon_wink.gif

    I run XP Pro, and it worked fine here. Could be something locally restricting you from doing so.

    Please read the comment of the poster of the other topic your replied to.

    I should have replaced/updated the question, I'll do that when I add a new set of questions soon.

    Nevertheless, I don't know why it doesn't work for you. Although the MS preferred method is now:
    According to the Microsoft.com tech notes With Sp1 for Xp the way of installing IpV6 has changed, and is actually installed using the Control panel to add the protocol "MS IP v6 developer".
    it should still work. It works for me on XP without SPs and XP with SP2.

    Can anyone confirm it works on SP1 as well? Would be silly if it worked on XP without and SP and on SP2, but not on SP1...

    Hmmm, makes me wonder why it doesn't work for antonio then as it shows that it should work on all sp versions.

    AH ok, now that I actually read your post:
    Is this the correct way to install IP version 6 on a Windows XP & Windows 2003 computer?
    No, this was the only way to install IPv6 on a Windows XP computer. I'm sure there's another more common method for Windows 2003, i.e. using the control panel, network connections properties etc.

    Note that Windows 2003 is not the server version of Windows XP and Windows XP is not the same as Windows 2003. In other words, XP and 2003 are not as similar as Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2000 Professional...

    I'll always be a rookie. Unless, I actually start studying again, taking tests, all that. Someday.....
