    v181 v182  
    7777'''How does tor relate to ipv6 and how should typical applications handle ipv6 if they use tor (or tor via Privoxy)?'''
    7878
     79Like a dog talking to a quasar... I never was good with similes.
     80
     81Tor carries TCP data (does it? Maybe it just carries some data that is then transported over TCP... I know, for instance, that it also contains IP and port... TCP doesn't) over another layer - currently IPv4. There is work to make Tor work with IPV6, but I am not aware of it being completed.
     82
     83As for how an application would interface with it -- depends. It could use SOCKS; in that case, I think it would have to use SOCKS5 in the event of addressing IPv6 (rather than domains). This could be hacked around by adding a .ipv6 domain - nasty.
     84
     85Privoxy? Same as currently, if it handles it..
