Technical Summary The Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) defined in this document provides mechanisms to install, manipulate, and delete the configuration of network devices. It uses an Extensible Markup Language (XML)-based data encoding for the configuration data as well as the protocol messages. The NETCONF protocol operations are realized as Remote Procedure Calls (RPC). This revision of the document clarifies some text and fixes some minor bugs (including reported rfc4741 errata) as found from implementatition experience of rfc4741. Working Group Summary The working group went over several versions of the document. The comments and reviews helped improve the document a lot and brought to consensus on the 6th revision of the document. Document Quality There are several implementations of this protocol, and in fact the rfc4741bis revision is based on implementation experience. Personnel Bert Wijnen is the Document Shepherd for this document? Dan Romascanu is the Responsible Area Director.
