The next generation of the IP protocol


Digital Equipment Corporation has a team working on implementing IPv6. Jack McCann, a Project Leader and development member of this team will be giving us a technical overview of IPv6, along with a discussion of the problems that IPv6 addresses and when it is expected to be widely deployed. IPv6 Implementations are being developed for many different host operating systems and routers. These include 4.4-lite BSD, AIX, BS2000/OSD, BSDI/OS, Digital UNIX, embedded operating systems, WIN95, DOS, Windows, FreeBSD, HP-UX, Linux, NetBSD, Novell, [Image] NTHU, SCO, Solaris 2, Streams, and 3com, BayNetworks, cisco, Ipsilon, Merit (routing protocols), and Telebit routers. We're holding this as a joint meeting with the Greater Boston Internet SIG.
