Introduced in version 14.1.


IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is the most recent version of the Internet Protocol, which provides identification and location information for devices connecting to the internet. IPv6 was developed to address the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses and offers an immensely larger pool of addresses, ensuring the continued growth of the internet.


IPv6 can be utilized on ping tests attached to targets or ad-hoc tests.
