Newer to IPv6? Know it some but just want to go a little bit deeper? I realized I never put up here on my web site my 7 part … labor of love…. IPv6 blog series I did over on Network Computing. 🙂
Why is IPv6 so difficult to understand? Fish explains how she began unraveling this complex topic.
Fish performs a little IPv6 sleight of hand in the second post in her series on IPv6.
Fish explores Wireshark sniffer traces in order to understand the difference between IPv4 and IPv6 addressing.
Fish lays down the basics of solicited-node multicast, which provides the functionality for Neighbor Discovery in IPv6 addressing.
Before jumping into solicited-node multicast, a review of link-local scope multicast addresses is helpful.
Fish gets ready to walk through solicited-node multicast, analyzing an ICMP ping echo request in IPv4 and showing how it differs from IPv6.
In the last installment of her IPv6 series, Fish explains how to find the MAC address associated with a Layer 3 IPv6 address.
