    Now on Rogers ipv6....remote access?

    Iv noticed im on ipv6 know but some sites also show me a ipv4 address. I tried using the ipv4 address for remote desktop but it doesnt work, using standard port 3389 btw. Am I stuck with using only ipv6 address now? I know some services I use do not support ipv6 yet such as noip.
