xx IP V6(TCP/IPv6) Problems
« Thread started on: Oct 4th, 2012, 04:25am »

Hi
I am hoping someone can point me in the right directions so that I can get send/receive working of my LAN.

Currently, when I try to send stickie it says cannot transmit when I use the machine name. However, if I use the IP address then they transmit without any problems. I have tried to ping the two machine using their names and this gets a response.

Reading somewhere else that it might be related to IO v6(TCP/IPv6) I unticked this on the Local Area Connection Properties. With this unticked the stickies transmit using computer names without any problems.

I have tried flushing the DNS and I do have the DNS optin ticked in Stickies. I am using Windows 7 if that makes any difference and version 7.1d of stickies.

Does anyone have any ideas to what I need to do to get stickies to work with the IP v6 on or could you tell me what I can try to find the solution.

Thanks for you help.

If you have not read it already there is an interesting post on it (but maybe not with a solution you like...)

Does Stickies continue to not work correctly when you turn IPv6 back on?

I've got a W7 machine here, and I suspect there are plenty of people running Stickies, and using networking on a W7 machine. As with W7, IPv6 is enabled by default, I don't suppose there's a general problem with Stickies and IPv6. It seems to affect just a few machines.

Hi Tom
Perhaps I can give you some more information which may help you to point me in the right direction, as I have tried some further options. I now have three machine on the network two are running windows 7 and one is running XP. The XP machine does not have IPv6 installed. The transfer of stickies works regards of the IPv6 situation if I use the IP address rather than the pc name on all the machines.

When using the PC name it appears that I can always send stickes to and from XP machine regardless of whether IPv6 is on or off the other machine.

However, I can only send and receive between the two Windows 7 machines when one of them has their IPv6 disabled. It does not matter which machine has IPv6 turned off this allows the stickies to be sent and received using PC name. However, when I switch IPv6 back on so that both machines are running IPv6 then Stickies do not transfer using machine name. However, they do work using IP address.

I have also used the following fix from Microsoft which sets registry up so that IPv4 is preferred over Ipv6. When this is set up on the one windows 7 machine then stickies can be sent from and to and from all the machines using PC names.

Microsoft link
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852
Microsoft Fix it 50410 Prefer IPv4 over IPv6.

I do not know enough about this to work out how to track the problem down and help would be appreciated. I have also tried the following ipconfig commands as well but this did not make any difference.

/all
/renew [Adapter]
/release [Adapter]
/flushdns
/displaydns
/registerdns
/showclassid Adapter
/setclassid Adapter [ClassID]
