Hi, I have two VPNs - one for my home network and one for my company network. The home one is a IPv4 and my company is on IPv6. Could I connect my home network to my company network? If so, what's the process?

    IPv4 & IPv6 are completely different protocols. To communicate each other, it is needed NAT64 for this purpose. There are several ways to do while one is dual stack, where the network hardware runs IPv4 & IPv6 simultaneously. When tunneling one protocol within another. This concept is based on the taking IPv6 packets and encapsulating them in IPv4 packets. Though, most popular way is dynamic tunneling technique called "6to4".

    Add your reply...I have two VPNs - one for my home network and one for my company network.

    Two VPNs? That's not clear. Where do you have these VPNs? It almost seems as if they aren't on a home system nor a company system.

    And what do you mean by "connect" them? That's a fundamental use of a VPN.

    Keep in mind, the IPv6 data is encapsulated in an IPv6 header, and entire IPv6 data & header combined are encapsulated in an IPv4 header. To create a tunnel, it is needed, dual stack configured routers and IPv4 & IPv6 addresses configured at each end.
