Why should you choose TONEX for your IPv6 Programming Training?

IPv6 Programming Training Class covers basics of IPv4 socket programming , IPv6 socket programming, socket API and more.

There are some incompatible differences related between IPv6 and IPv6 with:
• Name (DNS) and IP addresses management,
• Communication constants and data structures or
• Functions names and parameters
• Sockets and IPv6 Structs

In the general case, porting an existing application to IPv6 requires to examine the following issues in the application source code:
• Network information storage: data structures.
• Resolution and conversion address functions.
• Communication API functions and per-defined constants.

Aligned with IPv6 Forum IPv6 Programming Training Course

Write and Implement IPv6-capable Applications in a Mixed Network Environment and port
existing network applications to support IPv6.
You will learn to:
• Understand the benefits of making applications IPv6-capable.
• Perform IPv6 socket programming.
• Rewriting client and server applications to be IPv6 compatible.
• Use IPv6 porting tools.
• Parsing and mapping IPv6 address.
