    IPv4/IPv6 Difference:

    IPv4: If you are using internet or almost any computer network you will likely using IPv4 packets. It use 32-bit source and destination address field.

    The IPv6 address fields are 128 bits.

    IPv4: It can be stored as text for human readers and 32bit numeric address written in decimal as four numbers separated by periods
    IPv6: 128 bit IP address written in hexadecimal and separated by colons

    IPv4 was the first version of IP. It was deployed for production in the ARPANET in 1983. Today it is most widely used IP version. It is used to identify devices on a network using an addressing system.

    It is the most recent version of the Internet Protocol. Internet Engineer Taskforce initiated it in early 1994. The design and development of that suite is now called IPv6.
