In this article, we propose an Active Network mechanism based on IPv6 to forward communications. Indeed, with the use of the Internet Protocol improvements in its version 6, especially the concepts introduced in IPv6 mobility, we can use active nodes to perform the redirection of the packets of a unicast and UDP communication that we choose in advance. This redirection can be done transparently of one of the correspondents of this communication.
