Free eBook: IPv6 Addressing

IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) is the part of the TCP/IP protocol that is responsible for addressing packets. It uses a 32-bit address scheme which allows for a maximum of just over 4 billion addresses. With all the devices connected to the Internet today, all the addresses are quickly being used up.

IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6), is a standard for a 128-bit IP address. It allows for a maximum of about 340 trillion, trillion, trillion addresses. The switch to IPv6 is now underway. In this free eBook, Aaron Balchunas describes IPv6 and how to configure it to work along side IPv4. Learn which protocols will need to be updated to work with IPv6. Learn how to configure IPv6. The conversion is now underway, best to start learning now.
