IPv6 WorkshopAPAN Aug. 2003John BarlowAdvanced Communication Services Coordinator, GrangeNet
Goals • Design and set up a functioning, globally connected, IPv6 network. • After the workshop you should be able to engineer IPv6 networks within your campus, division or faculty; and to help teach or facilitate future IPv6 workshops. • Topics covered: • Router Configuration: How do you turn on IPv6 routing on a router? • BGP Configuration: Configure BGP sessions between the campus’ and core routers. • Addressing: How addressing works, what types of addressing schemes are possible, how allocations are made, and current best practices. • Bind configuration: Populate a DNS server with AAAA records, forward and reverse lookups, best practices, bind versions required, and potential pitfalls. • Application Space: Some students will set up IPv6-aware servers, including Telnet, HTTP, SSH and SMTP. • Transition Issues: How do you make your IPv6 network IPv4-aware and vice versa? How extensively can you do dual stack implementations and where do you need to do translation? • Discussion Issues: Multihoming, auto-configuration, network administration and network management. • Services: What IPv6 services should a campus or RNO currently offer? What are the best known practices for distributing IPv6 throughout a campus or state network?

IPv6 and APAN • Tunnel IPv6 from other APAN site, run IPv6 native as soon as possible. • Tunnel IPv6 within your country, run IPv6 native as soon as possible. • Request IPv6 address allocation from APNIC, for example see: • http://www.aarnet.edu.au/network/design/ipv6/addressing.html
