Title : Identifying Multicast Implications in a Link-Layer
Tunneling Mechanism for Unidirectional Links
Author(s) : J. Takei, H. Izumiyama

This document describes operational information for deploying
multicast network with link layer tunneling mechanism which
defined in [RFC3077]. RFC3077 defines the mechanism which allows a
operator to integrate unidirectional link(e.g. satellite link
etc..) into the network transparently. In some multicast network
configuration, a certain configuration for unidirectional link
are necessary. This document clarifies the problem that exist when
a operator use a multicast routing protocol with link layer
tunneling mechanism. It also describes how to solve those problem
with short term solutions and also long term solutions.
This document does not define any new protocol.

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
