Investigate IPv6 issues

Project ID: 
108
Current stage: 
Manager: 
Unit: 
What: 

Description: At present we're an IPv4-only site, more or less. IPv6 does raise its head every now and again, though, and we should perhaps be thinking about at least investigating the issues and how they're likely to affect us.

Deliverables: Report on the issues and their impact, and some suggestions as to how to take this forward. Note that this project isn't intended to provide any kind of IPv6 service, though test-beds may appear (and disappear...).

Why: 

Customer: Would-be IPv6 users

Case statement: IPv6 isn't currently supported in the School. We should at least be investigating to see whether it should be.

When: 

Status: Currently on the wish-list

Timescales:

Priority:

Time:

How: 

Proposal:

Resources: Probably just a bit of time and some old machines to test things on. Since we've hardly looked near IPv6 to date, it's hard to say more at the moment.
