The Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP)
specifies a Non-Broadcast, Multiple Access (NBMA) interface type for
the transmission of IPv6 packets over IPv4 networks using automatic
IPv6-in-IPv4 encapsulation.  The original specifications make no
provisions for the encapsulation and transmission of IPv4 packets,
however.  This document specifies a method for transmitting IPv4
packets over ISATAP interfaces.  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.
