I'm trying to keep this one more along the lines of a technical talk, as it
seems you can go to just about anywhere technical that's giving some sort of
IPv6 talk and get the "you really need to use IPv6 because of
blahblahblah". Nobody's really covering HOW to use it. I'm attacking it
from more of a "I want to set this up at home and play" perspective, but I
will be digging around on how to set it up in a datacenter using standard
routing/peering protocols. I'll do my best with the datacenter side stuff,
but it may not be spot on. The tunnel and daemon setups, OTOH, will be.
You'll be able to take my methods home with you and get a tunnel up that
night if you wish (or the next day if you've had a couple too many at
I'm not really going to touch the WHY you should learn it. Everyone has
heard that ad nauseum. If you want to discuss the whys after the meeting,
cool, but for the most part during the talk I want to stick to the down and
dirty HOWS. Sound good to everyone?
