IPv6_HongKong_ISOCAre you looking for a quick way to learn more about IPv6 and how to get started?  Would you like to quickly set up a computer to test out IPv6 and learn how to use it?

If so, check out the Consumer Guide: All About IPv6.  Published by the Internet Society Hong Kong Chapter, this ebook gives a basic introduction to IPv6, then provides tutorials for configuring IPv6 on consumer devices. It explains what IPv6 is all about by explaining IPv4 exhaustion and other benefits of IPv6 adoption. It also includes tutorials detailing how to enable and configure IPv6 and 6in4 tunneling on typical consumer software including Windows 7, Apple’s OS X, VPN clients, and home routers.

The book is a well-done basic introduction to IPv6 that is easy to read and understand.  It is available both as a PDF that can be printed or read in an ebook reader or on a tablet or smartphone – or as a website for desktop viewing, complete with a clickable table of contents and other controls.
