Erion’s David Holder is to speak at this year’s SambaXP conference in Göttingen, Germany. The paper entitled “How to Implement Samba in IPv6 Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 Networks” will provided detailed guidance on migrating heterogeneous networks to IPv6 using Samba. Details of the Samba XP agenda can be found at

Erion has been instrumental in the IPv6 enabling of the popular Windows and Unix integration open source package Samba. We were the first to successfully IPv6 enable the Linux CIFS client, Samba 3.2 and Samba4. In addition, we carried out the first IPv6 SMB connections between Samba and Windows Server 2008. Further information on Erion’s work with Samba and IPv6 can be found on our IPv6 blog at

SambaXP runs from 5th  May to 6th May 2010.
