Abstract

This document describes stateful NAT64 translation, which allows IPv6-only clients to contact IPv4 servers using unicast UDP, TCP, or ICMP. One or more public IPv4 addresses assigned to a NAT64 translator are shared among several IPv6-only clients. When stateful NAT64 is used in conjunction with DNS64, no changes are usually required in the IPv6 client or the IPv4 server.

Item Type: Standardization Contributions
Additional Information: Stateful NAT64 is a mechanism developed within the BEHAVE working group to allow IPv6 clients to connect to IPv4 servers through a translation device (the NAT64) with help from a modified DNS server (the DNS64). Stateful NAT64 is based on stateless NAT64 with several modifications. draft-van-beijnum-behave-frag64 and the NAT64 fragmentation presentation were meant to promote further discussion on how to handle the translation of fragmented packets in stateful and stateless NAT64s. These works were published as RFCs in April 2011.
