Installing and Configuring the IPv6 Protocol

There are two ways to install the IPv6 protocol for the Windows .NET Server 2003 family:

  • Install the Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 protocol when configuring the properties of a LAN connection in the Network Connections folder.
  • Execute netsh interface ipv6 install at a command prompt.

IPv6 is designed to be auto-configuring. By default, the IPv6 protocol for the Windows .NET Server 2003 family automatically configures link-local addresses. If there is an IPv6 router on the node's subnet or an ISATAP router, the node uses received router advertisements to automatically configure additional addresses, a default router, and other configuration parameters.

There are no property pages for the Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 protocol in the Network Connections folder. To manually configure addresses, routes, or other parameters, use the Netsh utility and commands in the netsh interface ipv6 context. For more information, see "Netsh.exe" in this chapter.
