I will start a serie or arcticles dealing with IPv6, Windows Server 2008 R2, and the security issues around IPv6.
First, we'll lay down a few simple, easy and clear basics to understand IPv6.
Next, we'll step by step setup and use Windows Server 2008 R2, through its main networking related roles :
Basic setup, DHCP Server, DNS Server, Active Directory Server
always using and explaining both IPv4 and IPv6 use.
Finally, we'll have a look at the issues IPv6 raises over Security, and at ways to deal with them neatly.
IPv6 is a promising and already happening technology, silently installing itself, little piece by little piece. Windows has IPv6 activated and prefered over IPv4 by default, since Vista. Some ISPs are starting to enable IPv6 on their custommers' networks silently and by default. So some people are using IPv6, althought they may not be aware of this.
An IT Admin now has to be prepared and skilled over IPv6, and the Security issues it brings.
We'll Discover that, in an easy, step-by-step, way. As well as Windows Server 2008 R2 basic networking roles.
I hope you'll enjoy this serie
