Hands-on Tutorial

Thursday 16 November 2006 - 9am - Salon Riviera

By taking part in this tutorial, participants discovered or perfected their knowledge on IPv6.

Participants participated in various sessions to discover the base of IPv6.

Participants actively contributed, with their booth partner, to the IPv6 tutorial by acting on two computers (1 Windows XP and Linux Workstation and 1 Microsoft Server) and on a Cisco router put at their disposal.

Participants managed:

  • IPv6 network mask and prefix

  • IPv4v6 Packets encapsulation

  • Ping6, DNS, Web, FTP

  • Cisco router configuration

  • OSPFv3

  • BGP for IPv6

  • Networking supervision ( Argus)

  • Demo: IPv6 CoS (using IPv6 multicast and videolan)

Participants were trained by people from Renater, ENST Bretagne.

Tutorial prerequisite:

  • Knowledge in the programming of Cisco or Unix routers

  • Knowledge on TCP\IP and routing  or

  • To have followed the course eLearning IPv6 of the 6DISS  or

  • To have followed the IPv6 summit Workshop on Monday

9:00 Welcome and Practical presentation:

Tutorial material

  • Welcome and context presentation
  • Addressing plan presentation
9:30 Tunnel set up
  • IPv4 Ethernet configuration
  • Tunnel configuration
9:40 Ping from the trainee's router
  • ping the remote end of the tunnel (central router)
  • set default route to the central router (via remote end of the tunnel)
  • ping6 @ de a.nic.fr
9:55 Configure the trainee's LAN (internal network)
  • configure the trainee's router interface without neighbor discovery (temporarily)
  • look at interface addresses (Ethernet, tunnel, ...)
  • configure the server with a fixed global address and set the default route manually
  • configure the trainee's router interface without neighbor discovery (temporarily)
  • do ping from server to the trainee's router using global addresses
  • do ping from the server to the router using local addresses
  • run ethereal on the client
  • configure and activate router advertisement on router
  • on the client :
    • look at packets find RS and RA
    • look at interface addresses, find relation between IID and MAC
    • look at routing table and find link local addresses
  • on the router :
    • look at ND cache
  • configure /etc/resolv.conf on both client & server
  • check DNS resolution is OK (ping6 FQDN, web browser http://www.kame.net/ , ...)

Coffee Break

11:10 Run a DNS on the server
  • configure BIND on the server
    • configure the trainee's DNS zone bench-xx.workshop.nic.fr with addresses from within the trainee's virtual prefix
    • configure the reverse DNS zone
  • launch your name server
  • check your DNS server works correctly: 'dig @server-xx.workshop.nic.fr server-xx.bench-xx.workshop.nic.fr aaaa'
11:30 Launch services
  • run apache server
    • show netstat
11:40 Filtering rules
