At this year’s SambaXP, Erion’s David Holder gave a comprehensive presentation on how to deploy Samba in IPv6 networks. The presentation, Deploying Samba in IPv6 Networks, covered how to configure IPv6 in a network consisting of Samba Unix/Linux servers and Windows clients/servers all running IPv6.
The presentation highlights the key differences between IPv6 and IPv4 that must be considered when deploying Windows networking using Samba. These include the correct configuration of the right kinds of IPv6 addresses, the configuraton of StateLess Address AutoConfiguration (SLAAC), the optional configuration of DHCPv6, the configuration of IPv6 enabled DNS and finally the configuration and operation of IPv6 enabled Samba.
Erion has a long history of working with Unix/Linux and Windows integration and in particular with the Samba Team on IPv6 enabling Samba. Further information can be found on our blog under Samba.
