Totd is a small DNS proxy nameserver that supports IPv6 only hosts/networks
that communicate with the IPv4 world using some translation mechanism. 
Examples of such translation mechanisms currently in use are: 

   * IPv6/IPv4 Network Address and Packet Translation (NAT-PT)
     implemented e.g. by Cisco.
   * Application level translators as the faithd implemented by 
     the KAME project ( See faithd(8) on

It is derived from the newbie nameserver, which (amongst others, like
implementing a full experimental nameserver) provides the similar 
functionality but is rather big and buggy and the author stopped
working on it.
