    IIRC Cisco has IPv6 support for all PIXen planned over the next year. They
    are trying to meet the DoD requirement of IPv6 support.

    While off on this topic, does anyone know if there's a third party IPV6
    stack for Windows 2000, since MS only has a technology demo for 2000 and
    only supports it properly on XP and up.

    And bringing this back into line, how ready are the various species of
    firewall, PIX, Firewall1 and the like, for IPV6.

    I keep a good amount of IPv6 links at www.itprc.com/tcp_ip.htm

    As far as books, I'd recommend "Implementing IPv6" By Mark
    Miller, and "IPv6" (2nd edition) by Christian Huitema of Microsoft.

    I saw Christian speak on IPv6 at our Catalyst Conference a few weeks ago in
    San Francisco, he laid out an incredibly compelling case for the deployment
    of IPv6 without once talking about address depletion. Essentially he noted
    that use of IPv6 would allow for a restoration of true end-to-end computing
    instead of requiring complex gateways, proxies, and NAT devices. Microsoft
    is making a major effort to move to IPv6 (their new "three degrees"
    collaboration tool is a native IPv6 application. It will be interesting to
    see the security/firewall issues of moving to an any-to-any model over the
    next few years.
