Dear all,

Please find below the announcement for a new Internet Draft that
specifies how to transport SIMCO over SCTP. Experience with a
prototype implementation has shown that this has several advantages
over using TCP. Any comments are welcome.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

	Title		: SIMCO over SCTP
	Author(s)	: S. Kiesel

   This document specifies how to use SCTP for the transport of the
   SIMCO (Version 3.0) protocol.  SIMCO (SImple Middlebox COnfiguration)
   is a protocol that implements the MIDCOM semantics.  It can be used
   for controlling middleboxes such as firewalls and network address
   translators.  SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) is a
   transport layer protocol that is expected to have advantages for this
   type of application, compared to TCP, which is the default transport
   layer protocol for SIMCO.  The specific requirements for SIMCO when
   using SCTP instead of TCP are specified in this document.

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.
