Title : MIDCOM Protocol Semantics

This memo specifies semantics for a Middlebox Communication (MIDCOM)
protocol to be used by MIDCOM agents for interacting with
middleboxes, such as firewalls and NATs. The semantics discussion
does not include any specification of a concrete syntax or a
transport protocol. However, a concrete protocol is expected to
implement the specified semantics or - more probably - a superset of
it. The MIDCOM protocol semantics is derived from the MIDCOM
requirements, from the MIDCOM framework, and from working group

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
