ISATAP Host Considerations

 ISATAP is available on Windows XP, Windows 2003, Vista/Server 2008,
port for Linux
 If Windows host does not detect IPv6 capabilities on the physical interface
then an effort to use ISATAP is started
 Can learn of ISATAP routers via DNS “A” record lookup “isatap” or via
static configuration

If DNS is used then Host/Subnet mapping to certain tunnels cannot be accomplished due to
the lack of naming flexibility in ISATAP
Two or more ISATAP routers can be added to DNS and ISATAP will determine which one
to use and also fail to the other one upon failure of first entry
If DNS zoning is used within the Enterprise then ISATAP entries for different routers can be
used in each zone

 In the presented design the static configuration option is used to ensure
each host is associated with the correct ISATAP tunnel
 Can conditionally set the ISATAP router per host based on subnet, userid,
department and possibly other parameters such as role
