IPv6 Addressing

  • Edward Horley


IPv6 addressing is not unique to the Microsoft Windows operating system (OS). This chapter covers the basics about IPv6 addresses and then jumps into the types of IPv6 addresses, how Windows behaves when using IPv6 (including transition technologies), and finally how to do some address planning and routing. It is important to cover all these topics so that you feel comfortable working with IPv6 as things are different enough from IPv4 to cause frustration if you are unfamiliar with the changes.
