> Abstract
>   The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) has a very long history, and despite
>   the fact that today, other options exist to perform file transfers,
>   FTP is still in common use.  As such, it is important that in the
>   situation where some client computers only have IPv6 connectivity
>   while many servers are still IPv4-only and IPv6-to-IPv4 translators
>   are used to bridge that gap, FTP is made to work through these
>   translators as best it can.
>   FTP has an active and a passive mode, both as original commands that
>   are IPv4-specific, and as extended, IP version agnostic commands.
>   The only FTP mode that works without changes through an IPv6-to-IPv4
>   translator is extended passive.  However, many existing FTP servers
>   do not support this mode, and some clients do not ask for it.  This
>   document specifies a middlebox that may solve this mismatch.
