Preparing an IPv6 Addressing Plan

For those looking at learning a little about IPv6 and guidance on addressing in the new 128bit world, SURFnet have written a useful document that is well worth reading. You can download an English translated PDF version (thanks to RIPE) titled Preparing an IPv6 Addressing Plan: Manual from here with more details also available here.


For a more in-depth learning experience and more detailed guidance, I would highly recommend the Understanding IPv6, Second Edition book written by Joe Davies (aka Cable Guy) as discussed here.



  1. Looks like a great set of books J - it's a shame that many ISPs aren't yet able to allocate and distribute IPv6 addresses.
