Subject: IPV6 Training Books
I am looking for some good reading material to get a
better understanding of IPV6. I know how to convert HEX into decimal
format. What I am looking for is how to under the CIDR notation and
break them out into subnets. Thank you in advance.
I recommend 'Running IPv6' by Iljitsch van Beijnum or 'IPv6 Essentials' by
Silvia Hagen. Also Chris Grundemann wrote a Day One Guide for Juniper
entitled "Exploring IPv6" which you can download for free at
52402 - Chapter 1 in the Day One guide has a lot of really good information
on understanding IPv6 addressing formats, subnetting, etc.
Either one of those should be able to answer most of your questions.
