Deploying IPv6

Like the Windows Vista operating system before it, the Windows 7 operating system has a new Next Generation Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) stack with enhanced support for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). This tutorial provides you with an understanding of why IPv6 is necessary and how it works. The tutorial describes the IPv6 capabilities in Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 and outlines how to migrate the IPv4 network infrastructure of your enterprise to IPv6 using IPv6 transition technologies, such as Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP). Finally, the tutorial describes how to configure and manage IPv6 settings in Windows 7 and how to troubleshoot IPv6 networking problems.
