Technical Summary The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) defines a Link Control Protocol (LCP) and a method for negotiating the use of multi-protocol traffic over point-to-point links. This document describes PPP support for Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) Protocol, allowing direct communication between Routing Bridges (RBridges) via PPP links. Working Group Summary There is consensus in the WG to publish this document. There was some discussion in the working group about IS-IS System IDs, and the draft reflects the consensus. Note that the document author is the working group chair. There is no document shepherd due to this, and the responsible Area Director has verified that WG discussions were conducted properly and that there was consensus to send the document forward. Document Quality There is a long list of vendors implementing TRILL, but at this point there are none that have announced support for TRILL over PPP. The PPP extensions described here are trivial, and the overall system implementation issues have been discussed in detail with several of the TRILL WG participants. No significant implementation, deployment, or interoperability concerns exist. Significant reviewers include Bill Simpson, Donald Eastlake, and Vern Schryver. Personnel There is no Document Shepherd. The responsible Area Director is Jari Arkko. RFC Editor Note N.A.
