Adapting Your Network Code For IPv6 Support – ELC 2012

Orange Pi Development Boards

Mike Anderson, CTO and Chief Scientist at The PTR Group, discloses how to bring your network code up to speed for IPv6.


IPv6 support is no longer a “sometime in the future” thing. We’ve exhausted the IPv4 address space and need to start transitioning our code to support IPv6. But, is this a big thing or a little thing? This presentation will outline the typical changes that need to be made to networking code to support IPv6 and describe transition strategies to enable use in a dual-stack environment. The target audience for this presentation is developers who want to take advantage of the new IPv6 address space. This presentation is targeted at intermediate-level developers with some understanding of the IP protocol stack.
