    I just completed the Hurricane Electric IPv6 Certification today.

    I'm curious if anyone else has done this, and what the general opinion on here is, regarding the validity of the cert!

    Personally, I found it to be an educational 'hands on' approach, to cutting your teeth regarding real world use of IPv6.

    Instead of a rake of multiple choice questions, you have to:

    Prove that you have IPv6 connectivity
    Prove that you have a working IPv6 web server
    Prove that you have a working IPv6 email address
    Prove that you have working forward IPv6 DNS
    Prove that you have working reverse IPv6 DNS for your mail server
    Prove that you have name servers with IPv6 addresses that can respond to queries via IPv6
    Prove your knowledge of IPv6 technologies through quick and easy testing

    There are plenty of resources available on Google to help with these, including an in depth tutorials for setting up IPv6 tunnels and Servers.

    By the way, the cert is free!

    What do you guys think?

    I have never heard of them, until just now.

    However I may just try them out to see what it's like... When I have time :)

    I started it last year, but failed miserably at the second exercise...
    Probably because I had to use tunnels instead of native IPv6.

    But apparently my provider is now on IPv6 so might give it another try :)

    Might depend on your tunnel broker. I used gogonet for the tunnel, godaddy for the use of a domain name registration (on the cheap) , and ultimately he.net for the DNS records.

    By the way, this is a non-accredited certification, and there is no time limit for completion.
    But Like I said before, as a structured IPv6 learning experience, it does what it says on the tin.

    Yeah, it did seem very interesting, will try to pick up on it.
    Thinking about dumping my Cisco 857 and upgrading to the 877W which does support ipv6 natively.
