Windows Vista Networking Technologies

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 contain a new networking stack, named Next Generation TCP/IP stack, that improves on the previous stack in several ways. It includes native implementation of IPv6, as well as complete overhaul of IPv4. The new TCP/IP stack uses a new method to store configuration settings that enables more dynamic control and does not require a computer restart after settings are changed. The new stack, implemented as a dual stack model, is based on a strong host model and features an infrastructure to enable more modular components that can be dynamically inserted and removed.

Famous quotes containing the words windows and/or vista:

    I came on a great house in the middle of the night
    Its open lighted doorway and its windows all alight,
    And all my friends were there and made me welcome too;
    But I woke in an old ruin that the winds howled through;
    And when I pay attention I must out and walk
    Among the dogs and horses that understand my talk.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Softly, in the dusk, a woman is singing to me;
    Taking me back down the vista of years, till I see
    A child sitting under the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
    And pressing the small, poised feet of a mother who smiles as she
    sings.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
