Video/Slides: IPv6 Autoconfiguration Tutorial

By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

Want to understand more about how IPv6 addresses are configured using SLAAC and DHCPv6? (Want to understand what “SLAAC” is?) If so, Fred Bovy recently posted a video of a presentation he did about IPv6 autoconfiguration.  In the hour-long video, he explains how autoconfiguration works, provides some examples in Linux and then later gets into mobile IPv6 and other mechanisms involved with IPv6 addressing.  If you are looking for a deep dive on IPv6 address autoconfiguration, you may find this very helpful.

Fred’s slides are also available from SlideShare:
