 IPv6 transition-6to4 tunneling

Linux Gazette tells us about IPv6 transition-6to4 tunneling.

"6to4 gateway is the heart of the 6to4 tunneling mechanism. In the source side it receives IPv6 packet from the source IPv6 node or IPv6 relay gateway. It transfers this packet to the destination through IPv4 network by encapsulating this IPv6 packet inside an IPv4 packet. Now the encapsulated IPv6 packet is traveling in the IPv4 network and reaches the destination side 6to4 gateway. "
