The Port Control Protocol (PCP) Anycast Addresses enable PCP clients to transmit signaling messages to their closest PCP-aware 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 Addresses.
