IP addressing is dead! Long live IP addressing!

In this talk Rick Troth will give an overview of IPv6: what it looks like, what it means for client and server connectivity, how you can get it, when and why you might want it. Now that residential ISPs are delivering IPv6, it's time to get ready.

And it's fun!

As always, feel free to bring with you any ailing or problematic systems for expert diagnosis (or destruction).

The upcoming meeting is open to the general public, and all with an interest in Linux, Free Software, Open Source Software, Windows, BSD, Unix, OS X, SELinux, WiFi, security, etcetera are invited.

There are no dues or fees.


The meeting will be held at:

2 Miranova Place
Columbus, OH 43215

Orange section in parking garage

NOTE: please RSVP to Scott Merrill <skippy at> so that the correct number of parking vouchers can be secured.

Please park in the Orange section of the parking garage, which is specifically for guest parking. Parking in any other spot runs the risk of taking someone’s assigned parking spot. There is little risk of doing so at 7 PM, but why risk causing any trouble? Please park in the orange section. We will have parking vouchers so you do not have to pay to park if you RSVP'd to Scott Merrill <skippy at>.


On-street parking is available at meters. I do not know how late they are enforced. We are in the Car2Go service area, so Car2Go users can park at nearby meters for free.

Check in at the front desk, and then take the elevator to the 11th floor.

Thanks to CoverMyMeds for hosting us! They're hiring all sorts of technical folks, check out their job postings and tech blog ScriptScribe.
