Title : Shipworm: Tunneling IPv6 over UDP through NATs
Author(s) : C. Huitema
Filename : draft-ietf-ngtrans-shipworm-01.txt
Pages : 25
Date : 06-Sep-01
We propose here a service that enables nodes located behind one or
several IPv4 NATs to obtain IPv6 connectivity by tunneling packets
over UDP; we call this the Shipworm service. The establishment of
the tunnel is automatic, and does not require any configuration
parameters on the client. Running the service requires the help of
'Shipworm servers' and 'Shipworm relays'; the Shipworm servers are
stateless, and only have to manage a small fraction of the traffic
between Shipworm clients; the Shipworm relays act as IPv6 routers
between the Shipworm service and the

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
