Support for use in IPv4, IPv6 and dual mode networks

Tekla Structures 2017 can be used in networks that use IPv4, IPv6, or both the IPv4 and IPv6 protocols. This enables companies that have only IPv6 Internet Service Provider (ISP) addresses to use Tekla Structures.

IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is an evolution of IPv4. IPv6 is usually supported in up-to-date hardware and operating systems, and often already activated and configured as well. IPv6 is installed as a software upgrade in most devices and operating systems. With the current transition methods, it is possible to gradually start using IPv6 in parallel with the IPv4.

See the image below for an example of a network using the IPv6 protocol.

In the image, the numbers indicate the following:

  1. Internet
  2. Internet connection
  3. ISP router
  4. Firewall
  5. Router
  6. Workstation switch
  7. Server switch
  8. IPv6 connection
