 +# 4in6
 +
 +4in6 is a method to transmit [IPv4](/​glossary/​i/​ipv4) traffic over explicit [IPv6](/​glossary/​i/​ipv6) connections.
 +
 +It is achieved by using tunneling to encapsulate IPv4 traffic over configured IPv6 tunnels as defined in [RFC 2473](/​glossary/​rfc/​2473).
 +
 +These tunnels are usually manually configured but they can be automated using protocols such as [TSP](/​glossary/​i/​ipv6).
