First Sentence
When we talk about "traditional IP" from now on, we use the term IPv4, which is short for Internet protocol, version 4 as of RFC 791 [32] and related documents. Read the first page

prepare for an eventual transition to ipv6 April 27 2007
By W Boudville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Eventually we are all going to have to migrate on the Internet from IPv4 to IPv6. To be sure, this has taken longer than expected. But the sheer exhaustion of IPv4 addresses is bound to happen, and is a fundamental driver of the transition. So if you are a network programmer wondering about career trends, Stockebrand's book can be a useful consult.

He presupposes that you're already familiar with how IPv4 operates. You are then shown how IPv6 is much more powerful. Not just with the effectively infinite address space. But with how other drawbacks of IPv4 were addressed by the v6 designers. One of which is how v4 has no intrinsic Quality of Service. Current attempts to impose a QoS over v4 are crude and rather ad hoc. Whereas v6 has this built in as one of its fundamental properties.

Another v6 innovation is for Mobile IP, ie. nomadic computing. For this to be efficiently implemented, v4 falls short. But v6 gives a far simpler implementation. Thus Mobile IP may end up being one of the factors pushing for v6.
Very much in practice May 14 2014

Seldom have I seen a unixer's book take so many flavours of Unix seriously. Mr. Stokebrandt must have spent exorbitant amounts of time fiddling with tedious setups of ip stacks. At times the hands-on examples become too much for a "good-read" -- but in time I would think these examples make the book a tremendous reference guide. The book is very thorough and I do not believe most unixers will ever encounter problems with ipv6 in areas not covered by this book.
I highly recommend the book.
Bit outdated Sept. 9 2012

The risk in computing industry when a book deals with a technology from a software perspective is it can get outdated soon. This book for example, uses FreeBSD 6.1 KAME and other Linux versions which are few years old. Most of the concepts mentioned hold good, but many CLI commands etc "may" have changed. So a word of caution there. But this is a good compact book on IPv6 from a practical purposes. Definitely recommend for quick browse especially if you are a Linux/FreeBSD/NetBSD shop.
