Title : IPv4 Automatic Multicast Without Explicit Tunnels
Author(s) : D. Thaler et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-mboned-auto-multicast-00.txt
Pages : 19
Date : 27-Feb-01
Automatic Multicast Tunneling (AMT) allows multicast communication
amongst isolated multicast-enabled sites or hosts, attached to a
network which has no native multicast support. It also enables
them to exchange multicast traffic with the native multicast
infrastructure (MBone) and does not require any manual
configuration. AMT uses an encapsulation interface so that no
changes to a host stack, or applications, are required, all
protocols (not just UDP) are handled, and there is no additional
overhead in core routers.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
