Get your hands on it with the IPv6 Test Lab Guide and extensions

If you are just starting to learn about IPv6 and want to get your hands on it, try the Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate IPv6 ( This new Test Lab Guide (TLG) takes you through the following:

  • The default IPv6 behavior of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 on a multi-subnet IPv4-only intranet
  • The use of the Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP) on an IPv4-only intranet
  • The use of native IPv6 addressing and routing on the intranet
  • The use of 6to4 to send IPv6 traffic across a simulated IPv4-only Internet

The resulting test lab is native IPv6-enabled on the intranet and can act as a test bed for application testing.

To configure and demonstrate DHCPv6 in the IPv6 test lab, see the IPv6 Test Lab Extension: Demonstrating DHCPv6.

To configure the IPv6 test lab for IPv6-only connectivity, see the IPv6 Test Lab Extension: Demonstrating an IPv6-only Environment

See the IPv6 Test Lab for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 portal page in the TechNet Wiki for more information.
