What is it ?
IPV6 is an IP protocol update. Developped in 128 bits, it allows you to overcome the fact that we are exhausting the number of available IP addresses. It still has the disadvantage of not offering backward compatibility with IPV4.
Is it compatible with Shadow ?
For now, Shadow isn't compatible with IPV6 and it is necessary to stay in IPV4.
Furthermore, if a software or a game offers you an option allowing the IPV6 usage, this option should never be accepted.
For example World of Warcraft offers this feature, checking the option increases the latency from near 300 ms.
