    11It is important to note that you can access the entire IPv4 network on an IPv6-only connection, for most intents and purposes the same way as if using IPv4.

    3 Many people do not understand that an IPv6-only connection is simply misconfigured, if it cannot access the IPv4 network via NAT64. There is no technological limitation that would prevent IPv6-only hosts to talk to IPv4 addresses. It is basically the same as if using dual stack, just without the IPv4 protocol. Your gateway is responsible for facilitating the necessary address translation.
