In this course you will learn how to use the latest version of the IP protocol, IP version 6 - also called IPv6. The protocol is about 25 years old, so it's about time to get it activated on your servers and networks!
We start the day with some basic history and background on the IP protocol. Next we address IPv6 and the many differences and similarities to IPv4.
During the course, we will address the IPv6 address format, IP header and packet structure, routing tables, stateful (DHCP) and stateless (SLAAC) addressing. We will also look at network traffic live with tcpdump.
In addition, you will also learn about multicast, NDP, which is essential for all IPv6 communication. We also shortly touch DNS around IPv6, ie. PTR records and AAAA records.
Finally, we come to debugging IPv6 networks, including issues with dual-stack configurations (systems with both v4 and v6 configured simultaneously).
Thomas Steen Rasmussen works for internet provider BornFiber as Unix administrator/security manager/developer. He also runs his own one-man business – tyktech. He is involved in the DNS censorship service and similar internet activist projects.
Windows users need PuTTY installed.

This course is for network and system administrators who wish to operate IPv6 servers or networks. The level is slightly rehearsed and rehearsed and requires basic networking skills and knowledge of TCP / IP. If you know what an IP (v4) address and a TCP port is then this is a great start. If you know the difference between a switch and a router, it's even better. The course is in Danish.
