Oh, goody, another round of wasted time and energy arguing about IPv6 and NAT
boxes on the IETF list (triggered, as usual, by more pro-IPv6 propoganda from
desperate IPv6 proponents).
Oh hardly. I just don't the fact that ISP's are now forcing NATs on
customers unless customers can document a reason why they need more
than 1 IP address. When NATs break so many existing protocols and
applications. I am not a IPv6 proponent other than IPv6 provides the
extended address space that everyone needs without breaking the end to
end model of IP.
