cout << test.is_v4();
cout << test.to_v4().to_string();

Also, with an ipv6, i get the following exception:

Microsoft C++ exception: boost::exception_detail::clone_impl<boost::exception_detail::error_info_injector<std::bad_cast> > at memory location 0x0087F8C0.

boost::asio::ip::address test;
cout << test.is_v6(); //RETURNS 0
cout << test.to_v6().to_string(); //CAUSES THE ABOVE EXCEPTION
