Item description for IPv6 in Practice: A Unixer's Guide to the Next Generation Internet by Benedikt Stockebrand...

Handling IPv6 for the first time is a challenging task even for the experienced system administrator. New concepts and mechanisms make it necessary to rethink well-established methods of the IPv4 protocol.

This book is a practical guide to IPv6 addressing Unix and network administrators with experience in TCP/IP(v4) but not necessarily any IPv6 knowledge. It focuses on reliable and efficient operation of IPv6 implementations available today rather than on protocol specifications. Consequently, it covers the essential concepts - using instructive and thoroughly tested examples - on how to configure, to administrate, and to debug IPv6 setups. These foundations are complemented by discussions of best practices and strategic considerations aimed at overall efficiency, reliability, maintainability, and interoperation.

The examples in this book cover all relevant aspects concerning Debian GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris. Examples about other Unix derivatives are available online at

Reviews - What do customers think about IPv6 in Practice: A Unixer's Guide to the Next Generation Internet?

prepare for an eventual transition to IPv6  Apr 27, 2007
Eventually we are all going to have to migrate on the Internet from IPv4 to IPv6. To be sure, this has taken longer than expected. But the sheer exhaustion of IPv4 addresses is bound to happen, and is a fundamental driver of the transition. So if you are a network programmer wondering about career trends, Stockebrand's book can be a useful consult.

He presupposes that you're already familiar with how IPv4 operates. You are then shown how IPv6 is much more powerful. Not just with the effectively infinite address space. But with how other drawbacks of IPv4 were addressed by the v6 designers. One of which is how v4 has no intrinsic Quality of Service. Current attempts to impose a QoS over v4 are crude and rather ad hoc. Whereas v6 has this built in as one of its fundamental properties.

Another v6 innovation is for Mobile IP, ie. nomadic computing. For this to be efficiently implemented, v4 falls short. But v6 gives a far simpler implementation. Thus Mobile IP may end up being one of the factors pushing for v6.
