Removed Disputed[edit]

I've removed the {{disputed}} tag from this article. It refers you to the talk page, but (until right now), there was no talk page, so it's unclear what was in dispute. If there is something specific you think is wrong, please just fix it in the article --RoySmith 18:45, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Conflicting information[edit]

I have read several articles around the net that say that IPv5 was an experimental successor/extension of IPv4. This would make sense in principal (as 5 > 4), except that according to Wikipedia articles, IPv4 was standardized after IPv5. Now, unless I'm missing something, I don't quite see the point in extending protocols that don't exist. I also can't understand why the developers would skip over IPv4 and go directly to IPv5 (that is, if the Wikipedia articles are correct).

Furthermore, there doesn't seem to be any information around as to what IPv1 through IPv3 were. Does anyone know enough about the early internet protocols to start articles on them? Or are they not considered noteworthy due to their (assumed) failure? (talk) 21:24, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

My bet is that IPv4 might have been standardized after IPv5 was given - but probably the name IPv4 (and corresponding version number) was given out first. IPv0 through v3 were probobaly also experimental. This implies that IPv1 through v3 cover the TCP/IP protocol version before they were split up. IPv4 was then the strict IP protocol.
