What are the major differences in supporting IPv6 over IPv4? What will we have to do to make our servers/networks compatible?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You will need Dual stack routers that support both IPV6 and IPV4, or you can us Tunneling, or you can use NAT Protocol Translation known as NAT-PT. It will be a slow transition before from IPV4 to IPV6. You will have to pick the one that is best suited for your network.

    Hi, You will have to make a high level IPv6 integration plan where you define your goal (what should your network look like in the future) and then from there determine the best steps to get there. If it is a larger network, you won't be able to do this in a short time. There are many different transition mechanisms to use along the way. You have to make yourself familiar with them in order to choose the best for your migration path. The general rules are: Choose native IPv6 wherever possible. Choose a goodl tunneling solution if native IPv6 is not yet possible, and only choose translation if there is no other way. Target to go IPv6-only as soon as possible and support legacy IPv4 applications with transition mechanisms. Hope this helps, Silvia
