IPv6 is something that many old school network admins don’t want to think about. They spent all that time learning dotted quad addressing and now something new comes along – and they’re expected to start thinking in hexadecimal.
Well, like it or not, IPv6 is something you’re going to have to think about when you deploy DirectAccess with UAG.
This means you’re going to have to come up with an intranet IPv6 addressing strategy and create the address structure, decide whether to manually configure hosts or do it automatically, and a whole lot more.
If the thought of all that gives you a headache, don’t reach for the aspirin; instead, head over to Jason Jones’ blog, where he makes it all make sense in part 2 of his “Path to DirectAccess” series, subtitled “Thinking about IPv6.”
