Some NAT boxes/routers allow the establishment of IPv6 tunnels from
systems in the private LAN (using private IPv4 addresses) to routers
or tunnel servers in the public Internet.
As far as we know this is not a common way of use IPv6 tunnels; the
usual way is to finish the tunnel directly in a device with an IPv4
This behavior provides a big opportunity to rapidly deploy a huge
number of IPv6 nodes and networks, without the need of new transition
mechanism. This option is very important to facilitate the IPv6
This document describes this behavior and provides hints that should
be applied in the NAT boxes and tunnel brokers to facilitate it.

MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"

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.
