The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) [1] provides a standard method for transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. This document introduces a new PPP feature called Semi Connected Mode. When both sides of a point-to-point link agree to use Semi Con- nected Mode, either side can transparently disconnect and re- establish a circuit-switched connection without having to reconfigure the point-to-point link each time.
