Tutorial: IPv6 - Introduction and Configuration
The IPv6 tutorial will offer a brief introduction to the protocol, including both technical as well as non-technical aspects, and only requires basic knowledge of IPv4. The most relevant aspect of IPv6 will then be analyzed, namely, transition and coexistence mechanisms.
