Microsoft Product IPv6 Compatibility

Q: How can I check which Microsoft products work with IPv6?

A: I had a reader who asked whether Active Directory can work in an IPv6-only environment (it can) and then started to ask about other products. After a quick bit of investigation, I found a Microsoft TechNet site that documents the IPv6 support in all Microsoft products and includes notes with additional information for some products. The IPv6 Support in Microsoft Products and Services website contains some interesting reading, including information about Microsoft Internet services such as Bing and Xbox.com.
