Thus spake "Keith Moore" <moore(_at_)cs(_dot_)utk(_dot_)edu>
NAT-PT really needs to be wiped off the face of the earth. It
provides all of the disadvantages of IPv4+NAT with all of the
transition costs of IPv6.
Indeed it does. However, it has significant benefits as well:
cannot agree more. i do not care if it is based on TCP/UDP relaying
(per session) or NAT-PT (per packet), but IPv6-to-IPv4 translators
have its own benefits. and of course drawbacks, but the drawback
is much smaller than conventional IPv4-to-IPv4 NAT as we have an escape
plan (use native IPv6).
