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		: Pseudowire Setup and Maintenance using LDP
	Author(s)	: L. Martini, et al. 
	Filename	: draft-ietf-pwe3-control-protocol-06.txt
	Pages		: 31
	Date		: 2004-3-25
	
Layer 2 services (such as Frame Relay, ATM, ethernet) can be
'emulated' over an IP and/or MPLS backbone by encapsulating the layer
2 PDUs and then transmitting them over 'pseudowires'.  It is also
possible to use pseudowires to provide SONET circuit emulation over
an IP and/or MPLS network. This document specifies a protocol for
establishing and maintaining the pseudowires, using extensions to
LDP.  Procedures for encapsulating layer 2 PDUs are specified in a
set of companion documents.

Send a message to:

In the body type:

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.
