Handling IPv6 for the first time is a challenging task even for the experienced system administrator. Even though IPv6 is in many ways simpler, more reliable, and easier to operate than today’s IPv4, its new concepts and mechanisms make it necessary to rethink a number of well-established methods and practices.
This book is a practical guide to IPv6 addressing Unix and network administrators with experience in TCP/IP(v4) but not necessarily any IPv6 knowledge. It focuses on reliable and efficient operation of IPv6 implementations available today rather than on protocol specifications. Consequently, it covers the essential concepts - using instructive and thoroughly tested examples - on how to configure, to administrate, and to debug IPv6 setups. These foundations are complemented by discussions of best practices and strategic considerations aimed at overall efficiency, reliability, maintainability, and interoperation.
The examples in this book cover all technologically relevant aspects concerning Debian GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris. Examples about other Unix derivatives are available online at www.benedikt-stockebrand.de.
