Rick van Rein invites you to learn from OpenFortress' experience with IPv6.
Jan 11, 2011 we will start on 19:00 with after a small regular meeting. There will be room for other activities as well.
What will you learn?
Topics to cover are:
- Differences IPv4 / IPv6
- Address and prefix syntax
- Addressing and routing schemes
- Autoconfiguration and DHCPv6
- Transition: 6to4, 6in4, and a mistake called Teredo
- Tunnels: SIXXS, Freenet6 (getting IPv6 anywhere you like)
- Life beyond NAT (and with firewalls)
- Solving problems (I'm sure we'll run into plenty)
- Why SIP phone calls over IPv6 rock
I prepared some slides to get us started.
How to prepare?
- I will assume that you have experience configuring IPv4 networking (no time for a crash course on basics).
- If you already decided to go for IPv6, I'd suggest that you go through the 10 easy steps at SIXXS so you can setup a tunnel "for real". If you do this in time, you may actually be able to request a subnet as well -- which is not instantly possible when you request your first tunnel. It takes a week or so to collect "experience points".
- I think I'm not gonna make it to request the subnet :( Onedutch
What should you bring?
I expect to have native IPv6 by then, and will try to get it going wirelessly as well.
- Laptop with fully charged battery
- UTP cable of some length
- An ethernet switch, if you have a spare one
- Anything beyond coffee, tea and biscuits that you'd like to use ;-)
Access is open to anyone with sufficient networking skills.
