Technical Summary This document specifies the behavior of the UPnP IGD (Internet Gateway Device)/PCP Interworking Function. A UPnP IGD-PCP Interworking Function (IGD-PCP IWF) is required to be embedded in CP (Customer Premises) routers to allow for transparent NAT control in environments where UPnP IGD is used on the LAN side and PCP on the external side of the CP router. Working Group Summary Nothing unusual. Document Quality A public implementation is available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/pcpclient/?source=directory. The authors are also aware of other implementations from some CPE vendors that are not yet disclosed publically. The PCP WG has a policy to not send a document until the WG has consensus and there are at least 5 people who have reviewed and ok'ed the document. Many others were involved in reviews of earlier versions, but the WGLC oks came from: Xiaohong Deng <email@example.com> Dave Thaler <firstname.lastname@example.org> Reinaldo Penno <email@example.com> Tiru Reddy <firstname.lastname@example.org> Paul Selkirk <email@example.com> The above reviewers collectively represent multiple implementations or potential future implementations. Personnel Dave Thaler <firstname.lastname@example.org> is the document shepherd; Ted Lemon <Ted.Lemon@nominum.com> is the responsible AD.
