This is a comparison of applications in regard to their support of the IPv6 protocol.

Application OS Version IPv6 Support Notes
AB Tutor Windows 7+ Yes
Avid Sibelius License Server Windows all No The license server only binds to and listens on IPv4
Avigilon Control Center Windows all No Neither the server, client or cameras support IPv6
Bromcom MIS Windows all Partial Bromcom MIS will work on an IPv6 only network, however the Access Control Lists do not support IPv6 and have to be removed from a users account directly in the SQL database. Bromcom do not officially support IPv6.
Google Chrome Windows 47+ Yes
Mozilla Firefox Windows 46tested Yes Supports IPv6 addresses under Windows using brackets as [IPv6]:port
Microsoft Internet Explorer Windows 11 Yes Supports IPv6 addresses under Windows using brackets as [IPv6]:port
Windows File Explorer Windows tested with Win 7–10, maybe XP Yes Supports IPv6 addresses in the address field, using \\fe80--abcd-eff0.ipv6-literal.net using dashes instead of double points
Microsoft Exchange Server[1] Windows 2013+ Yes
Internet Explorer[1] Windows 9+ Yes
Microsoft SQL Server[1] Windows 2005+ Yes
Microsoft Windows Server Update Services[1] Windows 4.0 Yes WSUS will work in an IPv6 only network, however Microsoft's Windows Update servers are only available over IPv4 so either an IPv6 transition mechanism will be needed, or a proxy server.
Mosh Linux all No[2] IPv6 is currently being worked on but is not yet supported. It is being done in a way that allows crossing between IPv4 and IPv6 without interruption for the client.
PaperCut Windows all Partial The PaperCut client supports IPv6 only networks where the IPv4 stack is not bound to a network adapter, however it will crash if the IPv4 stack is uninstalled. The PaperCut printer port does not support IPv6.
Planet eStream Windows test v6.10.05.10+ Partial The bulk of Planet eStream works perfectly over IPv6. The main feature that doesn't work is streaming video. Video playback will fall back to HTTP over IPv6 and you can't live stream from the encoder application, although it will upload recorded videos (a special IPv6 build of the encoder was provided / unsure if this is generally available at the moment). You also can't stream live TV over IPv6.
PuTTY all 0.66+ Yes
Sage 200 Windows v2015 and v2016 Partial Sage 200 mostly works in an IPv6 environment as it's based on Microsoft IIS. Activation will not work over IPv6 or using a proxy server so the Sage application server needs to have an IPv4 address to activate (Sage 200 offline activation has to be redone every 30 days!). The Sage 200 task launch will also fail to run if the IPv6 stack is uninstalled.
Skype for Business Windows all Partial The Skype for Business client supports IPv6 only networks where the IPv4 stack is not bound to a network adapter, however it will crash if the IPv4 stack is uninstalled.
Smoothwall SWG, UTM and WAM Linux all No
Solarwinds TFTP Server Windows 10+ Yes
SolidNetwork License Manager Windows all No
