Due to the changes occurring within the IPv4 address space, the utilisation of IPv6 within Grid Technologies and other IT infrastructure is becoming a more pressing solution for IP addressing. The employment and deployment of this addressing scheme has been discussed widely both at the academic and commercial level for several years. The uptake is not as advanced as was predicted and the potential of this technology hasn't been fully utilised. Presently, an investigation into this technology is underway as it may offer solutions to the future of IP addressing for collaborative environments. As part of the HEPIX IPv6 Working Group we investigate the test deployments of IPv6 at the University of Glasgow Tier-2 within Scot Grid and report on both the enablement of Grid services within this framework and also possible configuration solutions for Tier-2 network environments housed within University networks. Drawing upon various test scenarios enabled within the University of Glasgow, areas such as DNS, Monitoring and security mechanisms will also be touched upon.
