WGIPv6

!!Goal
To provide support for MelbWireless members wishing to deploy IPv6 on their nodes and perhaps, in the future, push for backbone/routing nodes/APs to be IPv6 enabled.

!!IPv6 and
MelbWireless
Several people have expressed an interest in IPv6 recently. At the July MelbWireless meeting, it was suggested that an IPv6 WG be formed to address IPv6 specific issues.

IPv6 was designed to replace IPv4 (the current Internet network layer protocol), and a medium term goal of MelbWireless should be to have as many nodes as possible IPv6 capable, to keep the network up with current technologies and trends.



!!Conclusion
There is an increasing interest in IPv6, and IPv6 knowledge will be invaluable in the future. IPv6 support is available for the major operating systems.

;Aarnet & Linux|http://www.aarnet.edu.au/network/design/ipv6/linux-ipv6.html :The following examples are based on Redhat 7.3. Generally Redhat 7.3 and 7.2 are the same for IPv6 configuration. For other Unix/linux flavours you should consult Peter Bieringer's web page listed below in the references (this is a usefult thing to do anyway !).

;Microsoft [IPv6/IPv4 Coexistence and Migration|http://www.microsoft.com/WindowsXP/pro/techinfo/administration/ipv6/ipv6ipv4.asp] :This article describes IPv4 and IPv6 coexistence and migration technologies and how these technologies are supported by the IPv6 protocol for Windows XP. This document is intended for network engineers and support professionals who are already familiar with basic networking concepts, TCP/IP, and IPv6.
