Abstract: Researchers found that Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) can be considered since it is the important communication protocol for internet access during driving, location privacy in Vehicular Adhoc Networks (VANET). TCP/IP allows devices to interact online. A unique IP address allows each device to communicate with each other over the internet. From the desktop computers to tablets, to PS4s, to mobile phones, to cars, to airplanes, to IP enabled washers and dryers, lot of things will be connected online. It needs a lot more addresses than that are available today. IPv6 was created in the mid-’90s to make the internet grow. It is not backward compatible with IP version 4, but both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols can run simultaneously over the same wires. This requires a transition from IPv4 to IPv6 and vice-versa. The IPv6 layer is a vital issue in the field of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). The vehicles possess heterogeneous devices like sensors, Global Positioning System (GPS), IPv4 addressing and IPv6 addressing. IPv4 addresses are depleting and IPv6 addressing came into existence. When the Road Side Unit (RSU) communicate with gateway and with vehicular cloud using IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, compatibility issues occur. This paper mainly focuses on the IPv4/IPv6 compatibility issues and the possible solutions to overcome the compatibility issues during the dissemination of data in VANET.
