This memo describes extensions to the IPv6 Neighbor Discovery that
allow a node to determine and advertise an IPv6 address corresponding
to a given link-layer address.  These extensions are called Inverse
Neighbor Discovery.  The Inverse Neighbor Discovery (IND) was
originally developed for Frame Relay networks, but may also apply to
other networks with similar behavior.

This document is a product of the IPng Working Group of the IETF. 

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
