In java, do we have an API to convert IPV6 address to IPV4 ? like "fe80::198:8ad2:22fe:2bff84"--> "127.0.0.1"

Thanks.

I doubt it is possible; IPv6 can hold so many more IP addresses than IPv4. It's like trying to squeeze 100 clowns into a car that can hold only 10 clowns.

And your example mapping is invalid; that IP address is definitely not 127.0.0.1; that's ::1.
