    Internet currently coexist of older IPv4 networks, new IPv6 network and networks that supports both IPv6 and IPv4 stack. IPv4 and IPv6 networks are unfortunately incompatible. To enable communication between these two networks several mechanisms were developed. These mechanisms are so called »IPv4/v6 transition mechanisms«. In this thesis first there are IPv4 and IPv6 protocols presented, disadvantages of an IPv4 protocol and advantages of an IPv6 protocol. Further there are some transition mechanisms presented (Dual-Stack, tunneling mechanisms and translation mechanisms). At the end there is a focus on a translation mechanism called Bump-in-the-Host which enables Dual-Stack hosts with IPv4-only applications installed to communicated over IPv6 network with IPv4 or IPv6 hosts. An example of an application that currently supports only IPv4 stack is Skype.
