I just tried installing the 64 bit Windows client on Windows 10, but I get an error message saying that Windows version is not supported.  I guess it's time for that client to be updated.  While…Continue

"Bluetooth 4.2 is all about continuing to make Bluetooth Smart the best solution to connect all the technology in your life, from personal sensors to your connected home," said Mark Powell, executive director of the Bluetooth SIG."In addition to the improvements to the specification itself, a new profile known as IPSP enables IPv6 for Bluetooth, opening entirely new doors for device connectivity."Bluetooth Smart is the only technology that can scale with the market, provide developers with the…See More

Sky to trial IPv6 soon with customers

"Our understanding is that IPv6 addresses will be allocated from a single /56 using DHCPv6 PD"I thought the general idea was that ISPs would hand out at a minimum a /64 per customer.  Some have even advocated /48s for everyone.  There are enough /48s for every single person on earth to have well over 4000 of them.  If all Sky is going to do is hand out single addresses, then they don't even need a /64.  I doubt they even have enough customers to fill out a /96, which provides over 4 billion…See More

Sybex Cisco Certified Network Associate book. Wait before buying

I have been studying this book with the intent of obtaining Cisco CCNA certification.  However, I noticed several errors in the chapter on IPv6.  I have been in contact with the author about this and he said he will be updating that chapter to correct the errors I pointed out.  I have the Deluxe Edition, 6th edition, revised and updated for 2011, but I believe the errors may also be in the 7th edition.  So, if it's on the shelf now, it will likely contain those errors.  Wait for one with a…

Good IPv6 reference book

I have noticed that many problems people experience are due to not understanding IPv6 and how it differs from IPv4.  There is one book that contains a lot of useful IPv6 information.  It is IPv6 Essentials, by Sylvia Hagen and published by O'Reilly.  It's available in both paper and e-book versions.  What's nice about the e-book version is purchasers are entitled to free updates.  I refer to this book…

IPv6 port scan site

I don't recall if I mentioned this before, but there's an IPv6 port scan site, which you can use to check your firewall on IPv6.
