Network namespaces: IPv6 connectivity

Taking advantage of the work done in the last two posts, I explain in this new article how to share IPv6 connectivity between a host and a network namespace


Network namespaces

A namespace wraps a global system resource into an abstraction which will be bound only to processes within the namespace, providing resource isolation. In this article I discuss network namespace and show a practical example.
