Abstract

The Port Control Protocol (PCP) Anycast Address enables PCP clients to transmit signaling messages to their closest on-path NAT, Firewall, or other middlebox, without having to learn the IP address of that middlebox via some external channel. This document establishes one well-known IPv4 address and one well-known IPv6 address to be used as PCP Anycast Address.
