The IPv6 Community Lab has a maximum of eight groups defined. Each group consists of a router, two sub-networks and one or two users.
The IPv6 Community Lab is sponsored by CANARIE and Cisco who have generously provided the funding and network equipment.
The routers are Cisco 2811's with Advanced IP Services for IPv6 routing services.
A Dell R710 server is configured to provide 16 Virtual Machines in the Community Lab.
The Virtual Machines are CentOS release 5.5 (Final) with Linux kernel 2.6.18-194.32.1.el5.
Each Virtual Machine is loaded with Bind and Apache2 to allow for experimentation with DNS and HTTP.
Users are given sudo access to allow for installation or update of packages.
Remote Access and Power Control
The networks 188.8.131.52/24 and 2607:f8f0:690::/48 are assigned for the lab.
2607:f8f0:690:0000::/60 is used for IPv6 uplinks to BCNET router
2607:f8f0:690:0010::/60 - 2607:f8f0:690:0080::/60 Group 1-8 Allocated IPv6 prefixes
2607:f8f0:690:0090::/60 is used for IPv6 links between routers
2607:f8f0:690:00a0::/60 is used for IPv6 in IPv4 tunnels
2607:f8f0:690:00a0::/64 tunnel 1
2607:f8f0:690:00a1::/64 tunnel 2
2607:f8f0:690:00ae::/64 tunnel 16
2607:f8f0:690:00af::/64 tunnel 17
Below are the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, VLAN, BGP, and interface information for each group.
The routers can be accessed using any of the IPv4 addresses.
