Tunneling is commonly used by several IPv6 transition mechanisms. To be able to automate setting up tunnels, one critical component is a solution to automatically discover the tunnel end-point (TEP) for the transition mechanism. This memo proposes a solution for discovering the IPv6 TEP in a simple an efficient way.
