Dear colleagues,

AfriNIC just concluded a three (3) day training workshop in Bulawayo -
Zimbabwe. The workshop ran from the 24th - 26th August 2011 council

Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

The workshop was attended by thirty (30) network engineers and systems

organisations as well as  government agencies and universities.

During the workshop participants learned the following amongst others:

[+] The limitations of NAT as a sustainable solution to IPv4 address

[+] 1 day of hands-on exercises using live equipment to build and
troubleshoot an IPv6 network (host configuration, intra domain routing
