Title : IPv6 over Fibre Channel
Author(s) : C. Desanti
Filename : draft-ietf-imss-ipv6-over-fibre-channel-00.txt
Pages : 24

Fibre Channel (FC) is a high speed serial interface technology that
supports several Upper Layer Protocols including Small Computer
System Interface (SCSI) and IPv4, as specified in [IPFC].
The purpose of this document is to specify a way of encapsulating IP
version 6 [IPv6] over Fibre Channel and to describe a method of
forming IPv6 link-local addresses [AARCH] and statelessly
autoconfigured addresses on Fibre Channel networks. This document
also describes the content of the Source/Target Link-layer Address
option used in Neighbor Discovery [DISC] when the messages are
transmitted on a Fibre Channel network.

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
