  Operational Guidance for IPv6 Deployment in IPv4 Sites using ISATAP
                    draft-templin-v6ops-isops-14.txt

Abstract

   Many end user sites in the Internet today still have predominantly
   IPv4 internal infrastructures.  These sites range in size from small
   home/office networks to large corporate enterprise networks, but
   share the commonality that IPv4 continues to provide satisfactory
   internal routing and addressing services for most applications.  As
   more and more IPv6-only services are deployed in the Internet,
   however, end user devices within such sites will increasingly require
   at least basic IPv6 functionality for external access.  This document
   therefore provides operational guidance for deployment of IPv6 within
   predominantly IPv4 sites using the Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel
   Addressing Protocol (ISATAP).

1.  Introduction

   End user sites in the Internet today currently use IPv4 routing and
   addressing internally for core operating functions such as web
   browsing, filesharing, network printing, e-mail, teleconferencing and
   numerous other site-internal networking services.  Such sites
