A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.


	Title		: Extending the Number of IS-IS LSP Fragments Beyond the
                          256 Limit
	Author(s)	: A. Hermelin
	Filename	: draft-hermelin-ext-lsp-frags-01.txt
	Pages		: 8
	Date		: 09-May-01
	
This document describes a mechanism to allow a system to originate
more than 256 LSP fragments, a limit set by the original Intermediate
System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) Routing protocol, as described
in ISO 10589.  This mechanism can be used in IP-only, OSI-only, and
dual routers.
The document describes behaviors that are backwards compatible with
implementations that do not support this feature.  These behaviors
are specified in a way that allows previous implementations to
correctly process the extended fragment information.

In the body type:

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.
