Migrating IPv6.exe Commands to Netsh Command

Published: August 15, 2002

Writer: Joe Davies

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) for Windows XP and Windows XP with Service Pack 1 (SP1) includes the Ipv6.exe tool, which is used to configure the IPv6 protocol. Ipv6.exe commands are being replaced with commands in the netsh interface ipv6 and netsh interface ipv6 isatap contexts. Because the Ipv6.exe tool will not be included in the Windows Server 2003 family, scripts that contain Ipv6.exe commands should be updated with the appropriate Netsh commands.

The following table lists all the Ipv6.exe commands and equivalent Netsh commands.

Details on this benchmark:
