IPv6: Why and How

Meeting Date: 
Wednesday, June 7th 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Jack Chastain

Most modern devices, whether open or closed source, depend upon the Internet for its functionality. This involves network addressing, both your own and your destination.

The IP methodology is "Open" in this respect, but many of us may not solve these challenges using IPv6...yet. We will discuss what's wrong with our old, familiar IP addressing scheme and how the new IPv6 version addresses those problems. This talk will cover the changes needed to shift your system away from the old, outdated and highly stretched addressing scheme and march boldly into the New World of v6.

300 Rockefeller Hall, Vassar College

MHVLUG returns to Rockefeller Hall for the 2016-2017 Vassar Academic year. The best parking on site is the north lot of campus, which is accessible off of Collegeview Ave in Poughkeepsie. Once you are parked in the north lot walk south along North Drive. Rockefeller Hall is on the right, somewhat set back, as you walk down the main stretch. Enter the hall and go to the third floor. Room 300 is at the top of the stairs. The room will be open at 5pm, and people are welcome to come early.
When in doubt, use the map for reference.
