Not quite on topic for this WG, but an interesting piece of running code to look at.
(Any discussion relevant to the implementation should occur on the contiki-developers mailing list, only.
Anything we can learn from this for our own work, of course, can and should be discussed here.)

Grüße, Carsten

> Hello,
> I've put together a new Contiki branch that provides an implementation of a 6LoWPAN Neighbor Discovery Proxy Gateway (6LP-GW) based on the ND Optimization for LLNs (http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-6lowpan-nd-18).
> The 6LP-GW runs on deRFgateway boards provided by Dresden Elektronik (http://www.dresden-elektronik.de) and comprises the following main features:
> * Real multiple network interfaces, i.e. an stand-alone Ethernet interface in addition to the radio interface.
> * Dual IPv4/IPv6 network stack.
> * 6LP-GW for easy integration of a 6LoWPAN network into an existing IP infrastructure.
> * "local host" component: beside the 6LP-GW component which does the proxying and forwarding
>  between the 6LoWPAN and the LAN, the local host component acts as an IP host in the attached Ethernet LAN
>  and allows thus to run additional applications (for example a CoAP/HTTP proxy).
> The 6LP-GW is an alternative to the USB based RPL boarder router standard approach in Contiki and allows 6LoWPAN nodes to share the same network prefix as other IPv6 devices within an existing network.
> The new branch also provides the ND optimization for 6LoWPAN nodes and currently supports ATmega128RFA1 based radio modules on deRFnode boards by Dresden Elektronik.
> The new Contiki branch is available on github:
> https://github.com/jotwg/deContiki
> I would be pleased about your comments and suggestions!
> In case you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.
> Thanks and
> best regards
