Abstract

Because of the exhaustion of the IPv4 address space, several techniques have been proposed to share the same IPv4 address among several uses. As an alternative to introducing a level of NAT in the provider's core network, this document provides a mechanism to assign non-overlapping layer 4 port sets to users assigned with the same IPv4 address: Port Set DHCPv4 Option.
