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!

Discussing DirectAccess on Security Talk

Recently I had the pleasure of sitting down with my good friends Yuri Diogenes and Tom Shinder to talk about DirectAccess on their video series “Security Talk – From End to Edge and Beyond“. We discussed the current state of DirectAccess in Windows Server 2008 R2, and then we talked in detail about some of the compelling new features of DirectAccess coming in Windows Server 2012.

Discussing Windows Server 2012 DirectAccess on RunAs Radio

Recently I had the privilege to join Richard Campbell on the popular technology podcast RunAs Radio to discuss Windows Server 2012 DirectAccess. Richard and I talked about the challenges network architects and system engineers face deploying DirectAccess with Windows Server 2008 R2 and how Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) 2010 can resolve some of those issues. We also discussed at length the features and capabilities of the new unified remote access role with Windows Server 2012, including the simplified DirectAccess deployment. You can download the podcast here.
