In the technological development of the Internet, the only constant is change. This book represents a best-effort snapshot of information for the Internet standards for IPv6 and its implementation in the Windows .NET Server 2003 family as of Release Candidate 1 of the Windows .NET Server 2003 family. There are legions of computer technology professionals who are working hard to make the information in this book obsolete (although perhaps not intentionally). Internet draft authors are writing Internet drafts that update or enhance existing IPv6 concepts and functionality. Software developers across Microsoft are updating software code to revise the capabilities of the IPv6 protocol or enable their applications to run over either IPv4 or IPv6.
