Dear all,

Please find below the announcement for a new version of our Internet
Draft that specifies how to transport SIMCO [RFC 4540] over SCTP.
Changes compared to previous versions of this Internet Draft are only
minor, clarifying one special case, fixing a typo, adding the
identifiers and port numbers registered with IANA, and updating the
references. Any comments are welcome.

We have conducted analytical studies as well as measurements on a
prototype implementation that compare the SIMCO transaction response
time when using TCP or SCTP with different numbers of streams,
respectively. For further information see



Any comments are welcome.

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

	Title		: SIMCO over SCTP

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.
