Simply IPv6

from the Hydra High Council Oct 22nd 2019

Hate IPv6? It's not your fault. IPv6 is almost always presented up front with theory and terminology that makes you wince, addressing that doesn't always seem to use the same number of numbers, and ugh, it's all in hex. No thank you.

If this has been your experience, take 4 minutes to watch this. Instead of approaching IPv6 from the top down and overwhelming you with all of that confusion, we'll show you an easy way to understand the addressing, comparing it to how you learned IPv4. Then we'll look over the shoulder of an admin configuring and verifying IPv6 and you'll see just how easy it is.

Afterwards, you can try out your new mad skills by downloading Packet Tracer and configuring a couple of routers using the same commands. Packet Tracer: https://www.netacad.com/courses/packet-tracer/introduction-packet-tracer
