The stateless translator can support IPv6-initiated communications as well as IPv4-initiated communications for IPv6 hosts using IPv4- translatable addresses. DNS support for the IPv6-initiated communication is defined in the DNS64 specification. This document defines the DNS46 function for the stateless translator.
