The aim of the Versatile File Delivery Protocol is to deliver files 
from few octets up to few hundred gigaoctets over multicast 
networks. It works over UDP and uses IP multicast addresses. VFDP 
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
