Wireless and mobile hosts are subject to changing their point of
attachment from one access network to another. These changes result
in link-layer events such as link up and link down. Information on
these events can be conveyed to interested parties in the form of
link-layer triggers. Primary consumers of this information are the
modules implementing mobility related network-layer protocols. When
provider and consumer of this information are co-located on the same
IP node, required communication can take place via internal
mechanisms. But when they are separate, as in the case of networks
using wired-to-wireless bridges, a transport mechanism is needed to
convey link-layer triggers. This draft defines a UDP based client-
server protocol for transporting link-layer triggers between two IP

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.
