Using an IPv6 Tunnel Broker With Linux

by Matt Ryanczak 11 July 2011 How-To

In previous articles I’ve covered the basics of configuring IPv6 on your Linux host. Knowing how to enable and configure IPv6 is valuable but this knowledge is not very useful if you can’t use it to connect to anything. At present most people are not connected to the IPv6 Internet because their ISP lacks support [...]

Interview on Junos Connect

by Chris Grundemann 1 June 2011 dont panic

I was recently flown out to Juniper HQ in Sunnyvale to record an on-camera interview about my two IPv6 Day One books for an episode of Junos Connect. Although the interview was completed in about 15 minutes after just 3 takes (two to be sure we had it, one due to someone walking through the [...]

Talking to Juniper about IPv6 and Day One

by Chris Grundemann 31 May 2011 dont panic

I was recently in Sunnyvale at Juniper HQ to record an interview for an IPv6 focused episode of Junos Connect (more on that laterhere). While there, Dan Backman and I recorded a couple of podcasts for distribution within Juniper. They’re not too overly boring so I figured I’d post them up here in case folks [...]

Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit Presentations Now Available

by Scott Hogg 26 May 2011 Events

The 2011 Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit attracted nearly 400 attendees this year.  The increase in interest in IPv6 can be attributed to the recent news about IPv4 address depletion.  The other factor driving attendance at the event was the lack of IPv6 training resources available.  The event included a pre-conference tutorial, a 2-day general session [...]

IPv6: Configuring Debian and Using Sysctl

by Matt Ryanczak 16 May 2011 How-To

In a previous article I discussed configuring IPv6 on a Redhat based Linux distribution. That article covered CentOS, Oracle and other Linux distributions based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). There is, however, another Linux distribution that is as widely used as Red Hat and has spawned at least as many derivatives and that is [...]

Transition Techniques for IPv6 – Some Techniques are ‘Bad’!

by Mukom Akong Tamon 2 May 2011 Analysis

Transition techniques are a key set of tools that will help organizations as they plan and deploy their transition to IPv6. However, not all transition techniques are born equal. This post makes the case for the fact that some types of transition techniques should not be emphasized (and should in fact be discouraged) when teaching IPv6, as they might hurt IPv6 deployment.

IPv6 Routing Deep Dive

by Chris 29 April 2011 dont panic

The 2011 Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit was held in Denver earlier this week (25-27 April) at the Grand Hyatt. It was a great event, as we have come to expect from the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force. I was especially pleased that they stepped the presentation content up a notch with regard to technical depth [...]

Day One: Advanced IPv6 Configuration

by Chris 27 April 2011 dont panic

Day One: Advanced IPv6 Configuration is a sequel to my first book, Day One: Exploring IPv6, and picks up right where it left off. Namely with BGP. In addition to a fairly thorough look at BGP (iBGP and eBGP / native IPv6 peering and sharing IPv6 routes over IPv4 peering), the book jumps into a few of the additional and often overlooked aspects of deploying an IPv6 network. This includes a look into topics and tools including VRRP, ICMPv6 rate limiting, CoS, IPv6 path MTU discovery, DHCPv6, zero hop-limit, Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) and Duplicate Address Detection (DAD).

Will your IPv6 site appear in search engines?

by Franck Martin 31 March 2011 Analysis

This seems another hindrance for the adoption of IPv6 on websites. Search engines use crawlers to go around all pages on all websites on the Internet (except when they are told not to by the robots.txt file on each site). From this crawling they index pages and websites so that the search engine can find [...]

ICANN Community Briefing on IPv6

by Chris Grundemann 4 March 2011 Analysis

I just sat in on a call/talk/presentation by Leo Vegoda (the guy who operates the IANA for ICANN) on IPv6. Overall, it was a great primer on IPv6, the exhaustion of IPv4 and the future of Internet addressing. One idea that I would especially like to echo here is his suggestion for everyone to send [...]
