Title : Aggregate Server Access Protocol (ASAP)
Author(s) : R. Stewart, Q. Xie
Filename : draft-ietf-rserpool-asap-01.txt
Pages : 25

Aggregate Server Access Protocol (ASAP) in conjunction with the
Endpoint Name Resolution Protocol (ENRP) [ENRP] provides a high
availability data transfer mechanism over IP networks. ASAP uses a
name-based addressing model which isolates a logical communication
endpoint from its IP address(es), thus effectively eliminating the
binding between the communication endpoint and its physical IP
address(es) which normally constitutes a single point of failure.

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
