Short answer is no, unless you have some device in the middle that “translates” IPv6 to IPv4 and vice-versa.

    IPv6 is backwards compatible with IPv4 so it should be able to talk to it just fine.

    To support IPv4/IPv6 compatibility, a scheme was developed to allow IPv4 addresses to be embedded within the IPv6 address structure. This method takes regular IPv4 addresses and puts them in a special IPv6 format so they are recognized as being IPv4 addresses by certain IPv6 devices.

    Yes, it can be done.
