The syslog protocol  describes a number of service options related
to propagating event messages. This memo describes two mappings of
the syslog protocol to TCP connections, both useful for reliable
delivery of event messages. The first provides a trivial mapping
maximizing backward compatibility. The second provides a more
complete mapping. Both provide a degree of robustness and security
in message delivery that is unavailable to the usual UDP-based syslog
protocol, by providing encryption and authentication over a

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
