Please Whitelist This Site?
I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)
If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.
If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.
Thanks for your understanding!

IPv6 Overview, Changes and Transition
IPv6 is destined to be the future
of the Internet Protocol, and due to IP's critical importance, it will
form the basis for the future of TCP/IP and the Internet as well. In
fact, it's been under development since the middle of the last decade,
and a real IPv6 internetwork has been used for testing for a number
of years as well. Despite this, many people don't know much about IPv6,
other than it's a newer version of IP. Some have never even heard of
it at all! We're going to rectify that, of coursebut before we
delve into the important changes made in version 6 to how IP addressing,
packaging, fragmentation and other functions, let's start with a bird's
eye view of IPv6.
In this section I provide a brief
higher-level overview of IPv6, including a look at how it differs from
IPv4 in general terms. I begin with a brief overview of IPv6 and why
it was created. I list the major changes made in IPv6 and additions
to the protocol from the current version. I also explain some of the
difficulties associated with transitioning the enormous global Internet
from IPv4 to IPv6.
