You have reached Teach Me IPv6

Available via IPv4 and IPv6



IPv6 training facilitated by Jeff Carrell, an IPv6 Forum Certified Engineer (Silver & Gold) and an IPv6 Forum Certified Trainer (Gold).

I offer these sessions as a webinar or F2F (if local to DFW).


IPv6 Basics

This session will explain the basics of IPv6, how the new address numbering system works, and how to implement IPv6 in the network infrastructure. Security concerning what devices and operating systems have IPv6 enabled by default will be discussed and the potential risks of exposure if the system is not properly implemented. There will also be a quick peek into some IPv6 packets with Wireshark.


IPv6 Troubleshooting with Wireshark

Whether you know it or not, IPv6 is running on your network, but is it working as you need or expect it to? Do you know what the Router Advertisement is configured as? Do you have "rogue" IPv6 routers on your network? Are the IPv6 enabled clients complaining of "slowness"?

Many technologists use Wireshark for validation of network operations and troubleshooting potential network problems. This session will briefly review IPv6 fundamentals and then dive into configuring Wireshark to assist in viewing IPv6 more effectively.


IPv6 Security Assessment Tools (aka IPv6 Hacking Tools)

Various IPv6 Security tools will be used to cause issues on an isolated IPv6 network, we will then review those operations with Wireshark, as well as review the affected IPv6 operations on the IPv6 clients.

This session will briefly review IPv6 fundamentals and then dive into configuring Wireshark to assist in viewing IPv6 more effectively.


IPv6 Essentials Cheat Sheet

Here is an IPv6 Cheat Sheet I put together. Hope you find it handy :-)
