Once the client (any dual stack node) has been authorized to access the TB service, it should provide the following information to the TB: IPv4 address of the client of the tunnel; the name to be used for the IPv6 address in the DNS server; the client function, host or router; if router then the number of IPv6 addresses required. A tunnel (IPv6 over IPv4) is setup between client host/router and the selected TS thus allowing the client to get access to the 6bone or any other IPv6 network the TS is connected to.

Depending on how many Neighbor Advertisement it receives, the node determines whether the tentative address is a duplicate or not. A preferred stateless address becomes deprecated when its preferred lifetime expires. A deprecated can continued to be used as a source address in existing CHAPTER 02 47 ~ommunications, but are not used in new communications if an alternate (non-: deprecated) address is available and has sufficient scope. , TCP, UDP) continues to accept datagrams destined to a deprecated address since a deprecated address is still a valid address for the interface.

The global address is constructed by combining the advertised prefix with the link's interface identifier. If the sum of the prefix length and interface identifier length does not equal 128 bits, the Prefix Information option is ignored and the host may log a system management error at this point. If an address is formed successfully, the host adds it to the list of addresses assigned to the interface, initializing its preferred and valid lifetime values obtained from the Prefix Information option.
