The following note was received on December 16, 1998

From: Mike Borella 

3Com Corporation owns one or more patent applications which may cover
technology discussed in 3Com's submission "draft-borella-aatn-dnat-01.txt"
relating to distributed or host-based network address translation.  3Com 
intends to make licenses available under any patents it may obtain that
cover technology necessary to implement an IETF standard relating to 
distributed or host-based network address translation under reasonable
and non-discriminatory terms and conditions.

3Com's willingness to grant such licenses to a particular licensee,
however, is conditioned upon receiving reciprocity from such licensee with

practice a standard.
