Abstract

This RFC describes use of Data Link Switching over TCP/IP. The RFC is

being distributed to members of the Internet community in order to

solicit their reactions to the proposals contained in it. While the

issues discussed may not be directly relevant to the research

problems of the Internet, they may be interesting to a number of

researchers and Implementers.

This RFC was created as a joint effort of the Advanced Peer-to-Peer

Networking (APPN) Implementers Workshop (AIW) Data Link Switching

(DLSw) Related Interest Group (RIG). The APPN Implementers Workshop

is a group sponsored by IBM and consists of representatives of member

companies implementing current and future IBM Networking

interoperable products. The DLSw Related Interest Group was formed in

this forum in order to produce a single version of the Switch to

Switch Protocol (SSP) which could be implemented by all vendors,

which would fix documentation problems with the existing RFC 1434,

and which would enhance and evolve the protocol to add new functions

and features.

This document is based on RFC 1434. This document contains

significant changes to RFC 1434 and therefore obsoletes that

document.
