If you are on the same network, or Vlan, or subnet as someone else you will probably notice that if you ping their hostname it will return with a IPv6 address.
If you want to still see what their IPv4 address is then simply use the command below:
ping hostname -4
Simply add a “-4” after your normal ping command.
