  • Michael Surkan: Introduction to IPV6


    I cannot quite tell what the default Teredo behavior is in Vista RTM.  For client-server archtiecture applications - say the Vista client user goes to an IPv6 website.  Is Teredo enabled by default?  Is any overt action required by the user to enable Teredo (like manually setting the Teredo server)?  Is there an autodiscovery mechanism for the Teredo server (like "isatap.domainname" for ISATAP)?  If the DNS resolver returns an IPv4 and an IPv6 address, will Vista use Teredo preferentially over IPv4?

    Is the Edge Traversal feature for "outbound" traffic, as well as for "inbound" (server) traffic?  Or just if Vista is acting as a server (or peer)?

    If this is clearly documented somewhere a link would be great.

    Thanks so much for your help.
