OSPF is a link-state intra-domain routing protocol used in IP
networks. OSPF behavior over demand circuits is optimized in RFC1793
to minimize the amount of overhead traffic. A part of OSPF demand
circuit extensions is the Hello suppression mechanism. This technique
allows a demand circuit to go down when no interesting traffic is
going through the link. However, it also introduces a problem, where
it becomes impossible to detect a OSPF-inactive neighbor over such a
link. This memo addresses the above problem by the neighbor probing

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
