A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Provider Provisioned Virtual Private Networks Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: A Core MPLS IP VPN Link Broadcast And Virtual Router 
                          Discovery

An IPVPN consists of many routers, some  physically  discrete  and
some  virtual,  housed in a Provider Edge router. The problem that
presents itself is that these virtual routers need  to  find  each
other  over  a  virtual  topology  and they need to send broadcast
datagrams as mandated in routing protocols [such as  the  neighbor
discovery  datagram  and  routing  updates  in  OSPF,  the routing
updates in RIPV2 etc] and user data over  this  virtual  topology.
This memo presents an approach for solving these problems.

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.
