This document defines a new Port Control Protocol (PCP) [RFC6887] functional element: the PCP proxy. As shown in Figure 1, the PCP proxy is logically equivalent to a PCP client back-to-back with a PCP server. The "glue" between the two is what is specified in this document. Other than that "glue", the server and the client behave exactly like their regular counterparts.

Port Control Protocol (PCP) Proxy Function
This document specifies a new Port Control Protocol (PCP) functional element: the PCP proxy. The PCP proxy relays PCP requests received from PCP clients to upstream PCP server(s). A typical deployment usage of this function is to help establish successful PCP communications for PCP clients that cannot be configured with the address of a PCP server located more than one hop away.
