IPv4 over IPv6 tunnel / DS lite implementation

IPv4 over IPv6 tunnel / DS lite implementation

IPv4 over IPv6 tunnel / DS lite implementation


I am currently working on a R&D project developing a new device which is connected to an IMS network. The device has an IPv6 only connection to the network. There is a requirement to run some legacy applications on the device which do support IPv4 only.

I am looking for an IPv4 over IPv6 tunneling solution – but all sources I could find are telling more about problems (e.g. when using NAT-PT) then giving answers.

So far the DS lite concept looks promising - but the only implementations I could find so far where using the network router as CPE/B4 element. As the device itself has got an IPv6 connection (and only this one) the conversion must be done one the device itself.

Is there any software implementation for DS lite? The device is running Windows 7.

Thx and best regards,
