A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Pseudo Wire Emulation Edge to Edge Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: Encapsulation Methods for Transport of PPP/HDLC Frames Over IP and MPLS Networks
	Author(s)	: L. Martini, et al.
	Filename	: draft-ietf-pwe3-hdlc-ppp-encap-mpls-01.txt
	Pages		: 10
	Date		: 2004-3-25
A Pseudowire (PW) can be used to carry PPP, or HDLC Protocol Data
Units over an IP or MPLS network without terminating the PPP/HDLC
protocol. This enables service providers to offer 'emulated' HDLC, or
PPP link services over existing IP or MPLS networks. This document
specifies the encapsulation of PPP/HDLC PDUs within a pseudowire.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
