Previously, we talked about IP addresses, their types, and the versions here. Now, we will see the differences between the two versions of IP addresses — IPv4 and IPv6.

In the table of the difference between IPv4 and IPv6 presented below, we will discuss around 22 differences including deployment date, address space, checksum, conversion, Variable Length Subnet Mask (VLSM), DNS Records, example, and so on.

Let’s see all of them in one table.

Note: — The raw version of the table is available publicly on GitHub gist. Please click the Difference.csv in the bottom left side of the table if you want to take a look at it.
