Planning for Using IPv6 Addresses

This chapter supplements Planning For Network Deployment by describing additional considerations when using IPv6 addresses on your network. If you do plan to use IPv6 addresses in addition to IPv4 addresses, ensure that your current ISP supports both address types.

For an introduction to IPv6 concepts, refer to Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6) Specification (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2460.txt).

For IPv6 configuration tasks, see Configuring IPv6 Interfaces in Configuring and Managing Network Components in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

For information about troubleshooting IPv6 networks, see Troubleshooting Issues With IPv6 Deployment in Troubleshooting Network Administration Issues in Oracle Solaris 11.3.
