IPv6 on CCNA..how much depth?

IPv6 on CCNA..how much depth?

IPv6 on CCNA..how much depth?

(OP)
I am wondering if maybe the instructors, or those who have taken ICND2's recent test can answer this...how much depth is recommended to study on IPV6 for ICND2?

I have taken the first test last year, and will be taking ICND2 very soon, and feel comfortable with most of the other material, but still sketchy on IPv6 because, honestly who is using this in real life yet (truly)?

The sources of study, including the various textbooks, online resources I have, etc are not consistent with how much is indicated to be responsible for. I'd like to know your opinions especially as it regards IPv6 configs.

Thanks! HH

RE: IPv6 on CCNA..how much depth?

Looking at the syllabus for ICND2 looks like it's not that in depth that you need to know about:
• Describe the technological requirements for running IPv6 (including: protocols, dual stack, tunneling, etc)
• Describe IPv6 addresses

So far, in all the exams I've passed, there hasn't been need to know much more than what is described above.

RE: IPv6 on CCNA..how much depth?

Taking the combined exam about 8 months ago, I didn't have a single IPv6 question. All I was told I needed to know was that it exists, the address makeup and know that most used routing protocols have an IPv6 version.

Oh and it does come up irl even now (I've had 1 related issue - Windows 7 related) and even more so in coming years. Especially now windows 7 is mainstream.
