IPv6 is enabled by default in Windows Vista. However, if you don’t use, it you can easily disable it. By doing so, you can conserve CPU and memory resources as well as improve network performance. On the other hand, if IPv6 is disabled, you can’t use Windows Meeting Space or any other applications that use the Windows peer-to-peer networking platform.
To disable IPV6 in Windows Vista:
- Click Start, right click Network and click Properties.
- Within the Network and Sharing Center, click Manage network connections.
- Right click your network connection and click Properties.
- Remove the check beside Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6).
- Click OK.
