Chapter 3

Introducing IPv6 (Overview)

This chapter presents an overview of the Oracle Solaris Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) implementation. This implementation includes the associated daemon and utilities that support the IPv6 address space.

IPv6 and IPv4 addresses coexist in the Oracle Solaris networking environment. Systems that are configured with IPv6 addresses retain their IPv4 addresses, if these addresses already exist. Operations that involve IPv6 addresses do not adversely affect IPv4 operations, nor do IPv4 operations adversely affect IPv6 operations.

The following major topics are discussed:
