A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries. RFC 3338 Title: Dual Stack Hosts Using "Bump-in-the-API" (BIA) Author(s): S. Lee, M-K. Shin, Y-J. Kim, E. Nordmark, A. Durand Status: Experimental Date: October 2002 Mailbox: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Alain.Durand@sun.com, firstname.lastname@example.org Pages: 16 Characters: 34480 Updates/Obsoletes/SeeAlso: None I-D Tag: draft-ietf-ngtrans-bia-05.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3338.txt This document specifies a mechanism of dual stack hosts using a technique called "Bump-in-the-API"(BIA) which allows for the hosts to communicate with other IPv6 hosts using existing IPv4 applications. The goal of this mechanism is the same as that of the Bump-in-the-stack mechanism, but this mechanism provides the translation method between the IPv4 APIs and IPv6 APIs. Thus, the goal is simply achieved without IP header translation. This document is a product of the Next Generation Transition Working Group of the IETF.
