Abstract

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

transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links.

This document describes the use of X.25 for framing PPP encapsulated

packets.

This document is the product of the Point-to-Point Protocol Working

Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Comments should

be submitted to the ietf-ppp@merit.edu mailing list.

Applicability

This specification is intended for those implementations which desire

to use facilities which are defined for PPP, such as the Link Control

Protocol, Network-layer Control Protocols, authentication, and

compression. These capabilities require a point-to-point

relationship between peers, and are not designed for multi-point or

multi-access environments.
