Workshop: IPv6 Basics

Instructor: Jordi Palet (6Deploy)

This workshop will introduce IPv6, look at the differences with IPv4 and, if you bring your own laptop, let you connect to the IPv6-enabled WiFi network and try it yourself. Then we will also introduce the transition mechanism and provide some hints and hands-on training about how to deploy IPv6 in your own organisation. Obviously, it is recommended that you bring your own laptop with Windows XP SP1 or a newer Microsoft OS. The slides will provide info for other operating systems as well.

The first two hours or so can also accommodate non-technical attendees such as government staff, CEOs, etc.

Instructor: Randy Bush (IIJ)

Introduction to Routing Security and the RPKI.

Workshop: IPv6 in Microsoft Environment
Instructor: Luka Manojlovic

This workshop will consist of showing the IPv6 configuration in Windows 2008 R2 / Windows 7 environment. Participants will configure machines to run on IPv6, install services / server roles and configure a complete IPv6 environment. They will also take a deeper overview of how to configure IP management in a business environment and configure static routing. The workshop will use the same slides as in Configuring IPv6 in Windows server 2008 R2 – video tutorial.

Every participant will have two virtual machines available: one Windows server 2008 R2 with two NICs and Windows 7 with a single NIC in the internal network. Participants should be equipped with a laptop and remote desktop connection client to be able to connect to servers that will be located in Slovenia.
