Meeting Presentation
"ipv6: This is Not Your Father's Internet"

"You may have heard rumours of the death of IPv4. It's true! "He's
dead, Jim." The last of the unused allocations ran out more than a
year ago. But
don't panic. Just recite the Boy Scout motto: 'Be Prepared.' And then
remember the words of Churchill: 'We have nothing to fear but NAT.'
(Okay ... the latter is not an actual quote.)"

Our own Rick Troth will give you a rough overview of:
 * getting IPv6 from a tunnel broker
 * enabling Linux as an IPv6 router
 * enabling IPv6 on Linux
 * some explanation about IPv6 contrasted with IPv4

Bring questions.  (Why do I need this?)
Bring hardware.  (ie: laptops ... or raspberries)

The upcoming meeting is open to the general public, and all with an
interest in networking, Free Software, Open Source, Linux, BSD, Unix,
Windows, are invited.

There are no dues or fees.
