       tayga - stateless NAT64 daemon


       tayga [OPTION]...

       tayga --mktun [OPTION]...

       tayga --rmtun [OPTION]...


       TAYGA  is  a stateless NAT64 daemon for Linux.  Using the in-kernel TUN
       network driver, TAYGA receives IPv4 and IPv6 packets  from  the  host's
       network  stack,  translates  them to the other protocol, and then sends
       the translated packets back to the host using the same TUN interface.

       Translation is compliant with  IETF  Internet-Draft  draft-ietf-behave-
       v6v4-xlate-23,  and address mapping is performed in accordance with RFC
       6052.  Optionally, TAYGA may be  configured  to  dynamically  map  IPv6
       hosts to addresses drawn from a configured IPv4 address pool.

       As  a  stateless  NAT, TAYGA requires a one-to-one mapping between IPv4
       addresses and IPv6 addresses.  Mapping multiple IPv6 addresses  onto  a
       single  IPv4  address  can  be  achieved  by  mapping IPv6 addresses to
       private IPv4 addresses with TAYGA and then using a stateful NAT44 (such
       as the iptables(8) MASQUERADE target) to map the private IPv4 addresses
       onto the desired single IPv4 address.

       TAYGA's configuration is stored in the  tayga.conf(5)  file,  which  is
       usually found in /etc/tayga.conf or /usr/local/etc/tayga.conf.


       Without  the --mktun or --rmtun options, the `tayga` executable runs as
       a daemon, translating packets as described above.

       The --mktun and --rmtun options instruct TAYGA to  create  or  destroy,
       respectively, its configured TUN device as a "persistent" interface and
       then immediately exit.

       Persistent TUN devices remain present on  the  host  system  even  when
       TAYGA  is  not  running.   This allows host-side network parameters and
       firewall rules  to  be  configured  prior  to  commencement  of  packet
       translation.   This may simplify network configuration on the host; for
       example, systems which use a Debian-style /etc/network/interfaces  file
       may  configure TAYGA's TUN device at boot by running `tayga --mktun` as
       a "pre-up" command and then configuring the TUN  device  as  any  other
       network interface.
