Hands-on IPv6 Workshop Lab
Lectures can be informative, but information retention and momentum are often lacking in this format. To combat this, we have developed an IPv6 hands-on workshop to engage participants.
- Dual-stack: This is the current state of the Internet. IPv4 and IPv6 will continue to coexist on the same networks for some years to come.
- IPv6-only: A doomsday scenario. Your ISP has no IPv4 addresses to give you. You can only see the parts of the Internet that have enabled IPv6. Some areas of the world may be in this boat soon.
- NAT64/DNS64: A slightly more realistic bent on the IPv6-only network. Endpoints are given only an IPv6 address, and through DNS query rewriting, IPv4 traffic is redirected to a special NAT in local IPv6 space.
- Router/manual: Participants can bring their own routing equipment and manually configure addresses to see how IPv6 packets move through the network.
