“Dual Stack” IPv4/v6?

How would I go about to dual stack IPv4 and IPv6 so that I can read both types of hosts?

Sorry. Can you be more specific? You can see IPv4 hosts on IPv6 and vis a versa, so why would you need to?

Windows 7 is already using both IPv4 and IPv6 at the same time. When possible it uses IPv6, otherwise it will fallback to IPv4. Even tho I don't have an IPv6 router, pinging any computers on the network uses IPv6, in my case anyways.
