Hi All,

I have just submitted a draft containing a refresh for RFC1226, "AX.25
over IP".


I am happy to receive any comments you may have. This draft has been
discussed within the TAPR APRSSIG mailing list, and that thread can be
found here:


I plan to survey existing implementations to see whether or not they are
currently interoperable, and will be producing an implementation for
HamBSD (https://hambsd.org/).

Currently this is specified for unicast IP, however I can see benefits
to enabling multicast use. I would like to have multicast use covered in
this update.

There is also the question of UDP encapsulated AX.25 which currently
seems to have been made up by every implementation. I will include that
in my survey, and see if there can be some consensus drawn there. I'm
not sure if it is appropriate to add the UDP encapsulation details to
this draft, or if it would be preferred to make that a separate draft,
maybe even in a different area/WG.
