So do you
have reference material concerning IPv6 or books you can recommend ?
I found a book in PDF-form, but it dates from dec 97. Other material on

You are free to not pay them for that service and do your own googling the same as that book author did. The info is out there, the authors

Linux Administration, under 30, couple outliers.
