Question Solaris 7 & ipv6

i am running solaris 7 on a server at work. my boss is wondering if Ipv6 can run under solaris 7. i have read that it is integrated in solaris 8 but i cant find anything about solaris 7.

does anybody have any articles on solaris 7 and ipv6? or do they know if they are compatible or if ipv6 works under solaris 7?

any help would be great. thanks
