<networking> A term used to describe a network node running both
IPv4 and IPv6 protocol stacks (or possibly others) at the
same time. Such a machine can act as a protocol converter
between the two networks.
A node without dual-stack support can relay traffic in a protocol
it does not support natively by use of tunnelling.
