Multi-Link Support for IPv6 Networks
MULTI-LINK SUPPORT FOR IPV6 NETWORKS

The common practice for IPv6 network configuration is to assign a unique subnet prefix for each physical link in the network. This process not only demands multiple subnet prefixes, but also requires manual administration and configuration. An alternative configuration method is to bridge all links at the IPv6 layer and assign a single subnet prefix for the entire network, thus the name multi-link subnet. In this paper we address the auto-configuration of a multi-link subnet for IPv6 networks. We first describe how multi-link subnet support can be implemented in a single-router network, and extend the methods to multi-router networks. We believe that the proposed auto-configuration methods complement the standard host auto-configuration protocol, and enable true plug-and-play networking necessary for ubiquitous deployment of IPv6 networks
IPv6 ağ konfigürasyonu için genel pratik ağ üzerindeki her fiziksel bağ için ayrı bir altağ öneki atamaktır. Bu uygulama hem birden fazla ağ öneki gereksimine sebep olur, hem de elle yönetim ve konfigürasyon gerektirir. Buna alternatif konfigürasyon yöntemi bütün bağları IPv6 seviyesinde bir köprü ile bağlamak ve bu sayede bütün ağ için tek bir ağ öneki ataması yapmaktır. Bu metoda çoklu-bağ öneki ismi verilir. Bu makalede IPv6 ağları için çoklu-bağ öneki oto-konfigürasyonu konusu ele alınmıştır. Öncelikle tek yönlendiricili ağlar için coklu-bağ desteğinin nasıl gerçekleneceği tarif edilmiş, daha sonra bu yöntemin çok yönlendiricili ağlara nasıl uygulanacağı anlatılmıştır. Önerilen oto-konfigürasyon yöntemleri standart alıcı otokonfigürasyon protokollerini tamamlamakta ve IPv6 ağlarının yaygın kurulum ve kullanımları için gerekli tak-çalıştır metodolojine olanak sağlamaktadır
