Is it possible to acces an IPv6 web page in an IPv4 intranet?

Is it possible to acces an IPv6 web page in an IPv4 intranet?

Is it possible to acces an IPv6 web page in an IPv4 intranet?

Hello Everyone!!

I have the following question: I have installed Contiki OS into Raven modules. If you are not familiar with this, it

consists basically of a dongle that connects via usb to an Ubuntu machine (in my case) that communicates wirelessly

using IPv6 protocols to an embedded microcontrollers, using as I said TCP/IPv6.

That microcontroller has a Web Page that is served by it and can be accesed from that same Ubuntu´s web broser by

means of just writing its IPv6 addres in the address bar.

My Question is...given a popular IPv4 based network with a router and several machines that have private  IP`s (i.e.

192.168.x.x), is it possible that one of those machines in my intranet can access that web page by writing the

microcontroller IPv6´s address in their web browser??

If it is not possible, i´ll go with this..how do I do to make that web page accessible from my intranet?

I thank you all for taking the time to read this!!
