Title : Default Router Preferences and More-Specific Routes
Author(s) : R. Draves
Filename : draft-ietf-ipngwg-router-selection-00.txt
Pages : 11

advertised to hosts require administrative configuration; they are
not automatically derived from routing tables.

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
