Webcast: IPv6 Fundamentals - Keys to Avoid Common Transition Mistakes
April 21, 2011
This session with leading O'Reilly authors and IPv6 experts will help you get prepared to successfully manage the transition from v4 to v6, identify when and how to get started and avoid mistakes.

"This book isn’t just about the server-side of IPv6 configuration. You also go over the client configuration as well as touch on areas such as Dynamic Resolver Configuration, NAT64 and DNS64. Just when you think you have it all covered, then you can start delving into Registering and Delegating to IPv6 Name Servers. This isn’t something that you will have running flawlessly overnight but with this book on your bookshelf, you will have the information handy when you really need it."
--Ron Nutter, TechBytes with Ron Nutter

"If you have anything to do with DNS - buy this book. You may not read this book cover to cover but you WILL reference it on a regular basis."
