Filename : draft-tsenevir-ipv6-bgp-tun-00.txt
Pages : 6

In this document we provide methods to discover and connect native
IPV6 clouds that are separated by IPV4 Internet. BGP-MP  is used
as protocol to discover IPV6 relay routers. BGP-MP(BGP4+)  is
used to distribute IPV6 routes. Encapsulation of IPV6 presented in
 is used to tunnel IPv6 traffic across IPV4 Internet. The method
presented here is known as 6in4 as opposed to 6to4  or 6over4.

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"

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

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
