Win a Copy of Understanding IPv6 Third Edition

Recently I announced that Joe Davies’ third edition of Understanding IPv6 was available for purchase. The latest release is fully updated to cover IPv6 technologies up to and including Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8. This new edition also includes coverage of DirectAccess in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012. This book will be a valuable resource for network and systems administrators implementing IPv6 on their corporate network or deploying DirectAccess to provide secure remote access. The good news is that I will be giving away several copies of this essential reference over the coming weeks and months! Stay tuned to this blog and follow me on Twitter and Facebook for details on how to win. I’ll be giving away my first copy of the book before the end of the month!

Networking and DirectAccess Sessions at TechEd 2012

This year I had the privilege of attending both TechEd North America and TechEd Europe, and presenting a session on Forefront TMG and UAG at both events. With the release of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 due later this year, there were many sessions about the technologies included in the new client and server operating systems. When I wasn’t delivering my session or spending time with the Microsoft team in the learning center, I attended a number of sessions on security and networking. If you were unable to attend, or perhaps missed any of these sessions, they are now all available online on MSDN Channel 9. [ North America | Europe ] Here is a list of my favorite sessions:

  • IPv6 Bootcamp: Get Up to Speed Quickly
  • Windows Server 2012 DirectAccess: How to Quickly and Easily Deploy Your Next Generation Remote Access Solution
  • Overview of Hyper-V Networking in Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2012 NIC Teaming and Multichannel Solutions
  • Networking for Hybrid Cloud: BranchCache and Cross Premise Connectivity
  • Hyper-V Network Virtualization for Scalable Multi-Tenancy in Windows
  • Extending Enterprise Networks to Windows Azure using Windows Azure Virtual Networks
  • Demystifying Microsoft Forefront Edge Security Technologies: TMG and UAG
  • Ok, I have to admit that I’m somewhat biased about that last session on the list. 😉 However, Windows Server 2012 does have a lot of new networking features and capabilities that make it a compelling solution for remote access and hybrid cloud connectivity. Have a look at some of these sessions and start evaluating Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 today!

    Understanding IPv6 Third Edition

    Joseph Davies’ latest book Understanding IPv6: Your Essential Guide to IPv6 on Windows Networks is now available. Now in its third edition, this book is an excellent reference for systems administrators and network engineers wanting to learn the fundamentals of IPv6, and specifically how IPv6 is deployed on Microsoft networks. The book explains in detail the inner workings of the IPv6 protocol, including addressing, IPv6 headers, ICMPv6, and neighbor discover. In addition the book also covers IPv6 name resolution, routing, and transition technologies such as ISATAP, 6to4, Teredo, IP-HTTPS, DNS64, and NAT64. New in this addition is a chapter covering DirectAccess in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012. Get your copy today!
