Are you concerned about IP version 6 (IPv6)?

Are you concerned about IPv6? Should you start learning about it and converting to it now?

These are all valid concerns. I mean, “everyone” has been talking about how IPv4 (our current IP addressing scheme) will run out of IP addresses for a long long time. “Everyone” says that you need to convert to IPv6 but has anyone done it?

Anyone out there?

I can tell you that I have read and checked it out but haven’t started doing anything related to IPv6 for any of the servers and networks that I support. However, if you worked at a university or a very large company, I am sure that you need to be ahead of a medium size company like the one that I support.

So, if you are concerned and have a few minutes, you should check out these links on IPv6 to help prepare:
