▣ Design an IPv6 address scheme for their organisations.

▣ Configure IPv6 on Windows/Mac and Linux desktop operating systems.

▣ Build a routed IPv6 network using both static routing and OSPFv3.

▣ Configure tunnelling techniques to allow v6-capable sites talk to other v6 sites across a v4-only network.

▣ Brainstorm solutions to issues holding back IPv6 in their organisations.

Details of our IPv6 modules are available at http://learn.afrinic.net/index.php/learn-modules/ipv6

Target Audience:

Network engineers and systems administrators who understand how to design and build IPv4 networks. Participants must already understand topics like:

▣ The OSI model and the various protocols that operate at each layer.

▣ IPv4 addressing and subnetting.

▣ Intra-domain routing and OSPF.

▣ Fundamentals of Inter-domain routing with BGP

▣ Basic network services like DHCP and DNS.

▣ How to use the command line interfaces of key routing platforms (e.g Cisco IOS)

Participants are expected to bring their own laptops which must have the following utilities installed:

▣ Virtualbox  available at http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

▣ A telnet and/or SSH client. If your operating system does not have these installed, you can download and install the following free ones:

     ▣ Putty - http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html
     ▣ Terraterm - http://en.sourceforge.jp/projects/ttssh2/releases/

▣ The RIPE whois client freely available from http://whois.sourceforge.net

Please note that although most Linux/unix operation systems have a whois client, these do not support most of the flags used by the AFRINIC whois server.
