Title : NETCONF Over SOAP
Author(s) : T. Goddard
Filename : draft-ietf-netconf-soap-00.txt
Pages : 19

The configuration protocol NETCONF is applicable to a wide range of
devices in a variety of environments. The emergence of Web Services
gives one such environment, and is presently characterized by the use
of SOAP over HTTP. NETCONF finds many benefits in this environment:
from the use of existing standards, to ease of software development,
to integration with deployed systems. Herein, we describe a SOAP
over HTTP binding that, when used with multiple persistent HTTP
connections, yields an application protocol sufficient for NETCONF.

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
