This tutorial will offer a practical introduction to the basics of IPv6. Participants will learn how to activate IPv6 on PCs, and be given practical instruction on:

  • IPv6 policies and procedures
  • Installing IPv6 on different platforms (XP/W2003, Linux, BSD)
  • Basic stateless/stateful configuration, including privacy setup
  • Transition mechanisms
  • Examples of applications
  • Basic configuration of routers

During the tutorial, attendees will also learn how to accomplish some basic monitoring and troubleshooting of the IPv6 network.

It is highly recommended that participants bring their own laptops to practice the lessons learned during the tutorial. It is assumed that most participants will be using Windows XP (this tutorial will be conducted in XP environment). However, instructions for other operating systems will be provided in the tutorial materials.

Intended audience

The tutorial is targeted at engineers and network administrators from both ISPs and SOHO/enterprise networks. Participants should already have a basic knowledge of IPv4.
