UDP tunneling can be used to provide seamless services in mobile environments. However this scheme only works when both frames are aware of mobility frameworks. To enable communication between a mobility aware users and non-mobile-aware or fixed users, we need a translator that able to convert UDP tunneling into conventional communication schemes. In order to achieve this goal author is going to design and develop such a service that is referred to as a proxy server.
A proxy server establishes a tunnel with a mobile node (already existent) and de-capsulated the incoming traffic; this can be either UDP or TCP traffic. Then the proxy server forwards the de-capsulated traffic to the fixed node. Similarly the traffic that is then sends form the fixed node to the mobile node is encapsulated by the proxy server and forwarded to the mobile user over the concerned UDP tunnel.
After the implementation is finished performance evaluation will carried out that analyses the overhead introduced by the presence of the proxy server.
