The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)  provides a standard method for
transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links.
Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) , facilitates the tunneling of
PPP packets across an intervening packet-switched network. And yet a
third protocol, PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE)  describes how to build
PPP sessions and to encapsulate PPP packets over Ethernet.
L2TP Active Discovery Relay for PPPoE describes a method to relay
Active Discovery and Service Selection functionality from PPPoE over
the reliable control channel within L2TP. Two new L2TP control
message types and associated PPPoE-specific Attribute Value Pairs
(AVPs) for L2TP are defined. This relay mechanism provides enhanced
integration of a specific feature in the PPPoE tunneling 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
