Title : Scalable Connectionless Tunneling Architecture and
Protocols for VPNs
Author(s) : T. Kuwahara et al.

This document defines a connectionless tunneling architecture that is
applicable to provider provisioned virtual private networks (PPVPNs)
and specifies protocols for implementing it. This architecture is
designed to facilitate scalable operation, load balancing, and high
reliability. A prominent feature of it is to provide VPN tunnels
over a connectionless network. Since a connectionless network can
provide full mesh connectivity without a connection establishing
procedure, the architecture enables scalable operation of a VPN more
efficiently than connection-oriented tunneling technologies.

MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"

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.
