There are multiple translation systems and I’ve heard of most, if not all of them.

None of them does what you propose — Smooth seamless communication between an IPv4-only host and an IPv6-only host.

So, please, Todd, explicate exactly how you would achieve that stated objective… What could you do differently on the IPv6-only host side that would allow smooth seamless connectivity to/from the IPv4 host while still providing a larger address space?

If it’s so simple, why do you continue to refuse to explain the process?
