Overview

Introduction

The Managing IPv4 and IPv6 Addressing module provides you with the instruction and server hardware to develop your hands on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:

  • Configure the Network to use an ISATAP Router
  • Setup Network Connectivity between IPv4 and IPv6 devices

Exercise 1 - Configure the Network to use an ISATAP Router

Intra-site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol or ISATAP is a bridge-over technology that enables IPv4-only networks and devices to communicate with the more evolved IPv6-only counterparts. In this context, an ISATAP router is an essential element of any network that can be utilized to communicate with the more advanced IPv6 networks or devices; or is to be itself upgraded from the current IPv4 support to IPv6 support. ISATAP is a built-in feature for Windows Vista and later, and Windows Server 2008 and later versions.

You configure a Windows Server 2008 R2 host to operate as an ISATAP router. The configuration enables the host to send out messages offering ISATAP addressing and routing information to the ISATAP-enabled devices. This configuration uses CLI commands as, currently, no GUI is available to configure these hosts.

Exercise 2 - Setup Network Connectivity between IPv4 and IPv6 devices

With the environment configured in exercise 1 to support an ISATAP router, you will now setup network communication session amongst IPv4-only network and IPv6-only network.
