my past 2 articles for LinuxInside

Following my first article on the Greek Linux Magazine called LinuxInside about IPv6, I uploaded my past 2 articles for it. Both articles are in Greek of course.

The first one is about debugging network connectivity issues using the command line on Linux. It was published on the 2nd issue of LinuxInside.

The other one is an introduction to Zsh. It was published on the 3rd issue of LinuxInside.

    Hi George,
    nice article on ipv6 for linuxinside. Since it seems it’s one of your main areas of interest I wanted to ask for any good (eng) book recommendations? I’d like on that is a good read and isn’t necessary a bible on the topic, you know? Is there one in particular that stands out from the rest?

    You can start with a free book on IPv6: “The Second Internet“. It’s not extremely technical but it will give you a good idea about key concepts.

    Then you could buy Microsoft’s “Understanding IPv6” which is a very good book on the topic, and fairly technical. I haven’t read the 3rd edition to which I’m linking but the second. From the description and title of the new book it looks as if the 3rd edition is more windows-centric than it’s predecessor. You have to judge by your needs.

    Because I wanted to make our product in my previous job work well with IPv6, I had to follow and study the related RFCs and play with both published and custom tools. Scapy can be a great help there. Trial and error.

    One thing to remember about IPv6 is that it hasn’t been completely finalized yet. There are so many new RFCs out there about IPv6 and there are more on the way. Unfortunately IPv6 was designed for a different Internet than we now have, so it needs modifications to cope with the new needs, especially regarding security.

    So if you’re interested in learning more about new stuff on IPv6 you should enlist in the v6ops mailing list.

    Have fun!
