Systems Management Question

IPV4 address isn't visible

10/24/2016 1340 views
When I ping a machine in Network.
It is able to reach it but it is showing only the IPV6 address but not the IPV4 one.

When I use IPConfig on that machine, I am able to get both IPV4 and 6 addresses.

Could you please let me know how to fix it.
