What once seemed nearly impossible has turned into reality. The number of available Internet addresses is now nearly exhausted, due mostly to the explosion of commercial websites and entries from an expanding number of countries. This growing shortage has effectively put the Internet community--and some of its most brilliant engineers--on alert for the last decade.Their solution was to create IPv6, a new Internet standard which will ultimately replace the current and antiquated IPv4. As the new backbone of the Internet, this new protocol would fix the most difficult problems that the Internet faces today--scalability and management. And even though IPv6's implementation has met with some resistance over the past few years, all signs are now pointing to its gradual worldwide adoption in the very near future. Sooner or later, all network administrators will need to understand IPv6, and now is a good time to get started.IPv6 Network Administration offers administrators the complete inside info on IPv6. This book reveals the many benefits as well as the potential downsides of this next-generation protocol. It also shows readers exactly how to set up and administer an IPv6 network.A must-have for network administrators everywhere, IPv6 Network Administration delivers an even-handed approach to what will be the most fundamental change to the Internet since its inception. Some of the other IPv6 assets that are covered include: routing integrated auto-configuration quality-of-services (QoS) enhanced mobility end-to-end security IPv6 Network Administration explains what works, what doesn't, and most of all, what's practical when considering upgrading networks from the current protocol to IPv6.

Stop waiting for the network team! If basic TCP/IP was hard, network administrators couldn’t do it. Servers give sysadmins a incredible visibility into the network—once they know how to unlock it. Most sysadmins don’t need to understand window scaling, or the differences between IPv4 and IPv6 echo requests, or other intricacies of the TCP/IP protocols. You need only enough to deploy your own applications and get easy support from the network team. This book teaches you: •How modern networks really work •The essentials of TCP/IP •The next-generation protocol, IPv6 •The right tools to diagnose network problems, and how to use them •Troubleshooting everything from the physical wire to DNS •How to see the traffic you send and receive •Connectivity testing •How to communicate with your network team to quickly resolve problems A systems administrator doesn’t need to know the innards of TCP/IP, but knowing enough to diagnose your own network issues transforms a good sysadmin into a great one.

A step-by-step guide to managing critical technologies of today's converged services IP networks Effective IP Address Management (IPAM) has become crucial to maintaining high-performing IP services such as data, video, and voice over IP. This book provides a concise introduction to the three core IPAM networking technologies—IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and Domain Name System (DNS)—as well as IPAM practice and techniques needed to manage them cohesively. The book begins with a basic overview of IP networking, including a discussion of protocol layering, addressing, and routing. After a review of the IPAM technologies, the book introduces the major components, motivation, benefits, and basic approaches of IPAM. Emphasizing the necessity of a disciplined "network management" approach to IPAM, the subsequent chapters enable you to: Understand IPAM practices, including managing your IP address inventory and tracking of address transactions (such as allocation and splitting address space, discovering network occupancy, and managing faults and performance) Weigh the costs and justifications for properly implementing an IPAM strategy Use various approaches to automating IPAM functions through workflow Learn about IPv4-IPv6 co-existence technologies and approaches Assess security issues with DHCP network access control approaches and DNS vulnerabilities and mitigation including DNSSEC Evaluate the business case for IPAM, which includes derivation of the business case cost basis, identification of savings when using an IP address management system, associated costs, and finally net results Introduction to IP Address Management concludes with a business case example, providing a real-world financial perspective of the costs and benefits of implementing an IP address management solution. No other book covers all these subjects cohesively from a network management perspective, which makes this volume imperative for manager-level networking professionals who need a broad understanding of both the technical and business aspects of IPAM. In addition, technologists interested in IP networking and address management will find this book valuable.

Address Unknown: A Guide to IPv6 offers a complete overview and introduction to the requirements and features of IP addressing within TCP/IP Version 6. IPv6 is the latest version of the core Internet communications protocol TCP/IP. The current version, IPv4, will eventually give ground to IPv6. However, network analysts project that the two versions of TCP/IP will live together for the next few years. TCP/IP addressing in IPv4 is based on a 32-bit addressing scheme. IPv6 will enable 128-bit addressing thus increasing the number of potential addresses on the Internet and avoiding the dire predictions that the Internet will run out of addressing space in the near future. This book provides a complete introduction to the TCP/IP addressing system and prepares system administrators to integrate IPv6 features into their Internet architecture. This book will be of interest to all system administrators managing an IP network, consultants working on IPv6 systems, as well as network design engineers seeking to fully understand IPv6 addressing issues. Key Features * Details the transition from TCP/IP Version 4 to IP Version 6 addressing * Includes important Internet RFCs detailing the IPv6 standard and addressing issues * Helps system administrators managing IP networks to understand the 128-bit addressing scheme and prepares them to transition from the current 32-bit address space

Pv6 Essentials discusses all aspects of IPv6, the protocol that will be used increasingly in our IP-based networks. IPv4, probably the most important networking standard in use, is growing old. It was developed almost 30 years ago and isn't able to cope with the requirements of tomorrow's networks. IPv6 is the evolution of IPv4. The two protocols are expected to coexist in our networks for many years to come. Many interoperability and transition mechanisms have been developed to ensure a smooth transition. Topics covered in this book include : The IPv6 header, Extension headers, and everything you need to know about the extended 128-bit address format ; ICMPv6 and its functions, such as neighbor and router discovery, autoconfiguration, Path MTU discovery, and multicast group management ; Security elements available in IPv6 and the IPSEC framework ; Description of QoS elements available in IPv6, including different QoS architectures ; Designs of sample networks and an overview of Mobile IPv6 ; Routing protocols such as RIPng, OSPFv3, BGP, and IS-IS. DHCP, DNS, SLP, HTTP, and other upper-layer protocols for IPv6. Interoperability and transition mechanisms and scenarios. Quick-start guide to using IPv6 on different operating systems, such as Sun Solaris, Linux, and Windows, and on routers IPv6 Essentials offers a well-organized introduction to IPv6 for experienced network professionals, as well as for administrators, managers, and executives. It explains the new features and functions of IPv6 and shows the protocol in action, including packet trace files. The book also provides an overview of where the market is, how to register IPv6 address space, and how to get started. Even if you don't plan to roll out IPv6 tomorrow, this book will help you to determine the right moment to integrate it into your corporate network strategy.
