Introduction to IPv6

Training Summary
The IPv6 Introduction course is designed to teach students the fundamentals of IPv6 and build a working foundation knowledge. The class covers the basics of IPv6 addressing, and neighbor discovery process including viewing the neighbor cache table. Furthermore, the IPv6 auto-configuration process between a client and default gateway router is detailed. Students work in pods and are assigned live equipment in class for completing their assigned labs. Routing protocols RIPng, OSPFv3 and BGP4+ are configured during class and each student is responsible to insure their routing protocols are working correctly. Each host is configured for Dynamic DNS to register their IPv6 address and host name with the DDNS server. Pings are done using both host and router names instead of actual addresses to prove DDNS operation. HTTP, FTP, TFTP, and Telnet are investigated in labs as to IPv4 vs IPv6 capabilities. Students will learn how to create an IPv6 access-list for both permitting and denying traffic through their assigned router.
Before taking this course, students should have basic knowledge of IPv4 and network principles.
