If you are just starting to learn about IPv6 and want to get your hands on it, try the Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate IPv6 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=9db5abdf-80e0-4c3e-9204-69c6c65e2195). This new Test Lab Guide (TLG) takes you through the following:

  • The default IPv6 behavior of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 on a multi-subnet IPv4-only intranet
  • The use of the Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP) on an IPv4-only intranet
  • The use of native IPv6 addressing and routing on the intranet
  • The use of 6to4 to send IPv6 traffic across a simulated IPv4-only Internet

The resulting test lab is native IPv6-enabled on the intranet and can act as a test bed for application testing.

To configure and demonstrate DHCPv6 in the IPv6 test lab, see the IPv6 Test Lab Extension: Demonstrating DHCPv6.

To configure the IPv6 test lab for IPv6-only connectivity, see the IPv6 Test Lab Extension: Demonstrating an IPv6-only Environment

See the IPv6 Test Lab for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 portal page in the TechNet Wiki for more information.

Enjoy.
