Erion has just released two IPv6 security training courses.

The first is a short (half day) briefing intended to give technical managers, networking and security staff a overview of IPv6 security threats and solutions.

The second is a three day intense technical course entitled Securing IPv6. This covers everything required to understand how to secure your network in readiness for implementing IPv6.

Details of both courses can be found on our main site and our IPv6 training site.

At SambaXP I demonstrated a version of Samba4 that was IPv6 enabled. In the attached document I describe how you can IPv6 enable Samba4. This enables IPv6 for the server side of Samba4.

The IPv6 Samba4 patch can be obtained from here (Samba4 IPv6 Server Patch) and the instructions from here (Instructions for Enabling IPv6 in Samba4).

The First Ever IPv6 Linux CIFS MountAt the SambaXP 2007 conference Steve French and David Holder IPv6 enabled the Linux CIFS client. At the SambaXP party on the Tuesday evening they successfully connected the Linux CIFS client to Windows Server Longhorn over IPv6 for the first time.

David Holder will be publishing instructions for testing the Linux CIFS client over IPv6. Steve has already posted an IPv6 enabled version. See
