This document is a guide to the introduction of IPv6 in the IPv4
based Internet or Intranets. Several general issues to start IPv6
networking in a predominantly IPv4 world are discussed, such as IPv6
addresses, IPv6 DNS and routing issues. Short descriptions are given
of the different translation and migration tools and mechanisms that
translate between IPv6 and IPv4 and/or tunnel IPv6 over IPv4. The
remainder of this document describes how IPv6 can be introduced in
various environments, such as ISPs, Internet Exchanges and end user
environments. Suggestions are given on the use of the different
translation and migration tools in each environment.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
