The aim of the Versatile File Delivery Protocol is to deliver files
from few octets up to few hundred gigaoctets over multicast

transmissions have been designed to be as reliable as possible
according to various and strong network constraints, either by
retransmitting the whole file or by sending only the missing packets
depending of a return channel existence.

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
