Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) Test Lab for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Internet Protocol version 6 is designed to solve many of the problems of the current version of IP (known as IPv4) such as address depletion, autoconfiguration, extensibility, and restoration of end-to-end connectivity. Its use will also expand the capabilities of the Internet and enable a variety of valuable and exciting scenarios, including peer-to-peer and mobile […]

Internet Protocol version 6 is designed to solve many of the problems of the current version of IP (known as IPv4) such as address depletion, autoconfiguration, extensibility, and restoration of end-to-end connectivity. Its use will also expand the capabilities of the Internet and enable a variety of valuable and exciting scenarios, including peer-to-peer and mobile apps.

This paper contains an introduction to IPv6 and step-by-step instructions for extending the Base Configuration test lab to demonstrate IPv6 functionality and connectivity in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

Here're the solutions that customers will need to deploy IPv6 connectivity:

  • One computer running R2 Enterprise Edition named DC1 configured as an intranet domain controller, Domain Name System (DNS) server, DHCP server, enterprise root certification authority (CA), and an IPv6 router.
  • One intranet member server running R2 Enterprise Edition named EDGE1 configured as a 6to4 relay.
  • One intranet member server running R2 Enterprise Edition named APP1 configured as a general app server.
  • One standalone server running R2 Enterprise Edition named INET1 configured as an Internet DHCP server, DNS server, and Web server.
  • One roaming member client computer running Windows 7 Ultimate Edition named CLIENT1.
  • The IPv6 test lab consists of three subnets that simulate the following:
    • The Internet (131.107.0.0/24).
    • An intranet subnet named Corpnet (10.0.0.0/24), separated from the Internet by EDGE1.
    • An additional intranet subnet named Corpnet2 (10.0.1.0/24), separated from the Corpnet subnet by DC1.
