What to test?
Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Network Manager: IPv6, Bonding, NetworkManager Hotspots, nm-applet, kdeplasma-applets-networkmanagement, Bluetooth
The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...
Prerequisite for Test Day
- IPv6 connectivity on local network (for IPv6 testing: you can do other testing without it)
- Native IPv6 connectivity from your IPS, at work, at school (Eduroam), remote server (dedicated, VPS).
- Local network router/gateway with IPv6 over IPv4 tunnel setup (6to4, 6in4 or Teredo).
- Wi-Fi adapter
- multiple network cards (for some tests)
- 3G modem (for some tests)
- Bluetooth adapter and a phone capable of Internet connection sharing over Bluetooth (for some tests)
Provide a list of test areas or test cases that you'd like contributors to execute. For other examples, see Category:Test_Cases.

Testing IPv6 - component perspective
- not restricted only for today (you can do it also later) ideally this week
- focus on component you would like to test (have some possibility to work over IPv6)
- for example components - postfix, bind, samba, openswan, openldap, tomcat, apache, etc ... . Try if component is able work over IPv6 properly
- you can try ipv6 only environment on localhost (disable ipv4 also for localhost, remove locahost ipv4 record from /etc/hosts, remove any other network from computer)
- install F19/rawhide into KVM or other type of virtualized solution
- add IPv6 addresses manually (same network subnet, add both records to your /etc hosts)
- disable ipv4 on guest network interface or restrict IPv4 communication by iptables
- configure & start your service to communicate over IPv6
- communication from host to guest service have to work
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Gnome Bugzilla. If problem is Fedora distribution related, report a bug to Red Hat Bugzilla usually for the component NetworkManager. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
