Theory and practice of the final phase of IPv4 to IPv6 transition for end site networks where (parts of) the network is IPv6-only or contains IPv6-only nodes

As IPv6 grows in maturity in terms of standards and implementations, and as understanding of its benefits grow, deployments, both pilot and production, will also increase in number.

Within the 6NET project, many of the participants have already made a significant investment in deploying early IPv6 services, mainly dual-stack, but a small number IPv6-only. In this document, we present a cookbook of theory and practice for IPv6 site deployment.

The cookbook includes information on the theory of various transition methods that have been proposed to date, as well as examples using popular IPv6 operating systems such as FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris and Windows and router platforms such as Cisco IOS, Juniper JunOS and Zebra.

This cookbook has been a living document since its first release D2.3.1 in 2002 and has been updated whenever major new material was available. Aside from the very first release two intermediate versions of this document ere released as D2.3.2 in 2002 and D2.3.3 in 2003. Updates to this final version from D2.3.3-bis include more detailed migration scenarios/reports (including case studies that are being undertaken jointly with the Euro6IX project) as well as a more comprehensive list of implementations.
