The "standard" KAME v6 stack comes with a network interface for exactly this purpose: "faith". It provides essentially an all-ports proxy from a v6 TCP client to a v4 TCP server. Its original stated purpose is to provide access to v4 for a v6-only local net, but it can be trivially used on the other end to provide a v6 inbound connection point for a local v4-only server. Perhaps a "load balancer v6 wrapper"? -- -- Todd Vierling <[email protected]> <[email protected]> <[email protected]>
