I'm working on a masters thesis in University of Oslo, and I'm 
wondering if anyone have a link or document describing how to 
use the support for QoS in IPv6? Spesifically how to set the 
flow-label field and the class-field. Or is this up to the TCP/IP 
stack? I have been looking at Winsock 2, because this project will be
based on NT, and it contains support for some types of real-time traffic
and multimedia transfer.

The question is basically if the IPv6 spec. incorporates some standard for
setting the values in these fields(flow-label & class-field)?
Or maybe its an RFC I have missed..:) ?(RFC1363 comes to mind)

If this is off topic here, I apologize.
