Setting up an IPv6 test lab
This section provides information about how you can use five computers to create a test lab to configure and test the IPv6 protocol. These instructions are designed to walk you through a set of tasks, exposing you to the IPv6 protocol and its associated functionality. Beyond the set of tasks, these instructions allow you to create a functioning IPv6 configuration. You can use this configuration to learn about and experiment with IPv6 features and functionality, to aid in developing applications for IPv6 or porting existing IPv4 applications.
This section covers:
The following instructions are for configuring a test lab using a minimum number of computers. Individual computers are needed to separate the services provided on the network and to clearly show the desired functionality. This configuration is neither designed to reflect best practices nor is it designed to reflect a desired or recommended configuration for a production network. The configuration, including IP addresses and all other configuration parameters, is designed only to work on a separate test lab network.
