                   IPv4 Support for Proxy Mobile IPv6

Abstract

   This document specifies extensions to the Proxy Mobile IPv6 protocol
   for adding IPv4 protocol support.  The scope of IPv4 protocol support
   is two-fold: 1) enable IPv4 home address mobility support to the
   mobile node, and 2) allow the mobility entities in the Proxy Mobile
   IPv6 domain to exchange signaling messages over an IPv4 transport
   network.
