Status of this Memo

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the

Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for

improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet

Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state

Abstract

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) [1] provides a method for

transmitting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. PPP

defines an extensible Link Control Protocol, and proposes a family of

Network Control Protocols for establishing and configuring different

network-layer protocols.

The IPX protocol was originally used in Novell's NetWare products

[3], and is now supported by numerous other vendors. This document

defines the Network Control Protocol for establishing and configuring

the IPX protocol over PPP.

This memo is the product of the Point-to-Point Protocol Working Group

of the IETF. Comments should be submitted to the ietf-

ppp@ucdavis.edu mailing list.
