A real world problem is to be dealt with. And then you are done.


3.IPv6 Sage from Hurricane Electric

One interesting thing is that this exam is free and after passing it you will get a free T-shirt. But you should know that today also there are very few IPv6 certified geeks in the world.

NB:All these things needs to be done on your own server or computer.
