Is IP version 6 available for NT/Windows 2000/95/98?

A. IP version 6 was first discussed in 'What is IPv6?'

Microsoft has released an Alpha release of IP version 6 (this is Alpha so not even Beta state so don't use on any live systems) which can be downloaded from It installs on Windows NT and Windows 2000 installations but not Windows 95 or 98. The stack does not replace the IP version 4 stack but sits beside it allowing normal IP 4 connectivity to continue unaffected.

You can actually download the source and not just the images if you are interested.
