The IPv6 test lab
consists of five separate computers on three subnets:
The CLIENT1 computer can connect to any of the three subnets. The following figure shows the IPv6 test lab (click on it for a larger version).
This figure shows the computers and their connections to the subnets using a hub or switch. You can implement this configuration using physical computers and switches, virtual computers and switches,
or a combination of physical and virtual components.
If you are using Windows Server 2012 and the Hyper-V server role for your virtualization solution, you can configure the IPv6 test lab in Hyper-V on a single server as shown in the following figure
