In this paper, we discuss our experience form porting
the OpenH323 platform to IPv6. We briefly discuss the
structure of the platform, and we present the various
problems we faced and choices we made, regarding the
easiest approach to the porting procedure, the
compatibility with earlier, IPv4-only versions of the
platform, the existence of tools that could aid us with the
porting task and the verification of result. We believe
that the results of our effort can serve as guidelines for
other similar projects and we present a general
methodology which might be applicable to similar
porting projects.
