Conference paper

This paper deals with the support of IPv6 for mobile user groups using the scenario of passengers in an aircraft connected via a satellite link to ground Internet. Several solutions are discussed to support user laptops having IPv6. The peculiarity of the scenario lies in the fact that satellite modems usually offer single IPv4 addresses only. We address IPv6 over IPv4 tunnelling and Network Address and Port Translation (NAPT) with dual stack routers as possible solutions. The NAPT solution is optimized to save overhead over the satellite link, and required signalling to allow ground-to-air traffic is addressed. Finally, a performance estimation is given.
