I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-pppext-rfc2878bis-01.txt



A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Point-to-Point Protocol Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: PPP Bridging Control Protocol (BCP)
	Author(s)	: M. Higashiyama, F. Baker, T. Liao
	Filename	: draft-ietf-pppext-rfc2878bis-01.txt
	Pages		: 38
	Date		: 25-Jul-02
	
The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) [6] provides a standard method for
transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links.  PPP
defines an extensible Link Control Protocol, and proposes a family of
Network Control Protocols for establishing and configuring different
network-layer protocols.
This document defines the Network Control Protocol for establishing
and configuring Remote Bridging for PPP links.
This document obsoletes RFC 2878, which was based on the IEEE
802.1D-1993 MAC Bridge[3]. This document extends that specification
by improving support for bridge control packets.

In the body type:

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.
