Ping returns IPv6 Address, ping IPv4?

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.

command line
