Solaris 8 and IPv6

IPv6 is integrated in Solaris 8 ( Sparc and Intel platform )



The IPv6 protocol stack and IPv6 utilities are integrated into Solaris 8 operating environment. Sun offers support for IPv4 and IPv6. The OS cannot support IPv6-only at this time ( 2001/08 ).

2. IPv6 Addressing 3. IPsec for IPv6 will be implemented in a later release of Solaris 8

4. Mobile IP will be implemented in a later release of Solaris

5. Java support will be implemented in a later release of Solaris

6. IPv6 Socket Scrubber for developers

( You can identify IPv4 socket code in applications. Review and modify this code with the IPv6 Socket API ( RFC 2553 and RFC 2292 ). There is no much to do, because porting a socket application requires only changes in a few lines of code . IPv4 dependencies can be found with the Socket Scrubber. If you have modified your application, you'll be able to use the IPv6 protocol stack. The IPv6 Socket Scrubber is available for SPARC™ and Intel Solaris Architecture. The IPv6 Socket Scrubber and the porting guide are downloadable free of charge, please look at www.sun.com/solaris/ipv6. )
