1.1.3. About the author

1.1.3.1. Internet/IPv6 history of the author

  • 1993: I got in contact with the Internet using console based e-mail and news client (e.g. look for “e91abier” on groups.google.com, that's me).

  • 1996: I got a request for designing a course on IPv6, including a workshop with the Linux operating system.

  • 1997: Started writing a guide on how to install, configure and use IPv6 on Linux systems, called IPv6 & Linux - HowTo (see IPv6 & Linux - HowTo/History for more information).

  • 2001: Started writing this new Linux IPv6 HOWTO.
