Microsoft TechEd North America session - IPv6 Bootcamp Session follow up

I just finished up my IPv6 session at Microsoft TechEd - thanks to everyone who attended, really appreciate you took the time to come hear me talk. I promised to provide some of the content references. I have to confirm with Microsoft I can publish the deck that has the full comments in it (they were removed from the deck available for download) before I can publish anything. If you attended my session please feel free to reach out to me and I will see what I can do to get you specific information (like sample configuration files.) Please remember to fill out your evaluation for my session too!

The book references I had mentioned that you might be interested in:

The following RFC’s related to IPv6 are here for reference:
·         2460 – IPv6
·         3068 - 6to4
·         3986 – URI Syntax
·         4193 – ULA
·         4380 – Teredo
·         5214 – ISATAP
·         6146 - NAT64
·         6147 - DNS64
·         6296 - NPT66
·         6343 - 6to4 advisory
·         6555 - Happy Eyeballs

If you are interested in starting to play with IPv6 there are several resources to do so. If you want to set up a IPv6 tunnel from your router then try out tunnelbroker.net which is run by Hurricane Electric. You will need to set up an account to use the service.

If you want to try it out on your Windows 7 or Linux client use freenet6 which is a free service from gogo6. You will also need to set up an account to use freenet6 too.

I'm one of those that fear the big v6 but getting more motivated to really dig in. I'm taking my 70-642 soon and this was a great session, I enjoyed it a lot, thanks!
