An interesting guide on deploying IPv6 networks and services in different environments, available for free.
The guide includes:
- Step by step guides on enabling IPv6 on different Operating systems (Linux, Windows OS, MacOS).
- Detailed steps of deploying IPv6 at SOHO & enterprise environments and connecting to an IPv6 Internet service via different tunneling methods available.
- IPv6 addressing plans.
- Enabling IPv6 services – Mail, Web (httpd, IIS), DNS etc.

A number of users on Apple’s support forums noticed that the latest Airport/Time Capsule 7.6.3 firmware released last week seems to disable IPv6 tunneling on various devices. It will likely be fixed in a future release. You can revert to a previous version of the firmware until Apple fixes the issue.

“On this site you can see an overall list of adoption on a country-by-country basis, or click on one of the flags, the map or the links to dive into detail on that particular country’s top sites. When you view a a country it lists the top sites with the IPv6-accessibility of that site’s web presence, email and DNS services. If you keep scrolling on down the page, you will see the IPv6 prefixes assigned to entities within that country and again the current status of each prefix.”
The following is a config. scenario where you can deploy wccp in a vrf environment on a couple of Cisco ASRs. I am using ASR1000 series running on the following IOS code:
Few Cisco platforms and IOS code truly suppor vrf aware IP services, I’ve come across lot of hair-pulling moments while trying to deploy various IP services on vrf. In this setup we are using VRF-Lite to run wccp.
There are advantages in in running wccp on a vrf – You can isolate which users you want to serve from the web cache engines. This is particularly useful if you have environment where there are multiple services provided by a single router. Continue reading
Ok, now I update my iphone to iOS 6.1 and thought I should have IPv6 connectivity without much of a hassle.
Now, the iOS 6.1 feature guide does not mention anything about IPv6 support. (iOS new features). All fancy, eye candy stuff alright, but nothing about IPv6… nada…nowhere…
I thought I’d test it out to see if iOS 6.1 can work with IPv6. I setup my home router (already running IPv6 with my ISP on dual-stack) to hand out IPv6 addresses using EU-64 format. Connect the phone to wifi and navigate to network settings::: Apparently, the network settings only show IPv4 details: Continue reading
