Document: draft-ietf-pim-port-09.txt
Reviewer: Suresh Krishnan
Review Date: 2011/11/01
IESG Telechat date: 2011/11/03

Summary: This document is almost ready for publication as an
Experimental RFC but I have a few comments.


Section 3.1

* From my reading of the document, it is not clear whether we can have a
node advertise multiple capability options of the same transport
protocol (say PIM-over-TCP-Capable) in the same message. e.g. A dual
stack node might want to advertise its capability to do both IPv4 and
IPv6. Is this possible? If so, how?

Section 4.7

* Section 4 talks about the router with the lower connection ID
initiating the transport layer connection but this does not really map
into the rules mentioned in Section 4.7. Specifically, I am not sure
Rule 3 for Node A in Section 4.7 conveys the same intent as section 4.
