Liao Status: Standards Track Date: April 2003 Mailbox: Mitsuru.Higashiyama@yy.anritsu.co.jp, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com Pages: 40 Characters: 82102 Obsoletes: 2878 I-D Tag: draft-ietf-pppext-rfc2878bis-01.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3518.txt The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) provides a standard method for transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. PPP defines an extensible Link Control Protocol (LCP) and proposes a family of Network Control Protocols (NCP) for establishing and configuring different network-layer protocols. This document defines the NCP for establishing and configuring Remote Bridging for PPP links. This document obsoletes RFC 2878, which was based on the IEEE 802.1D-1993 MAC Bridge. This document extends that specification by improving support for bridge control packets. This document is a product of the Point-to-Point Protocol Extensions Working Group of the IETF. This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol. This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
