Abstract

This memo defines a Management Information Base (MIB) module for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing tunnels of any type over IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Extension MIB modules may be designed for managing protocol-specific objects. Likewise, extension MIB modules may be designed for managing security-specific objects. This MIB module does not support tunnels over non-IP networks. Management of such tunnels may be supported by other MIB modules. This memo obsoletes RFC 2667.

Abstract

   This memo defines a Management Information Base (MIB) module for use
   with network management protocols in the Internet community.  In
   particular, it describes managed objects used for managing tunnels of
   any type over IPv4 and IPv6 networks.  Extension MIB modules may be
   designed for managing protocol-specific objects.  Likewise, extension
   MIB modules may be designed for managing security-specific objects.
   This MIB module does not support tunnels over non-IP networks.
   Management of such tunnels may be supported by other MIB modules.
   This memo obsoletes RFC 2667.

1.  Introduction

   Over the past several years, there has been a number of "tunneling"
   protocols specified by the IETF (see [RFC1241] for an early
   discussion of the model and examples).  This document describes a
   Management Information Base (MIB) module used for managing tunnels of
   any type over IPv4 and IPv6 networks, including Generic Routing
   Encapsulation (GRE) [RFC1701,RFC1702], IP-in-IP [RFC2003], Minimal
   Encapsulation [RFC2004], Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) [RFC2661],
   Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) [RFC2637], Layer 2
   Forwarding (L2F) [RFC2341], UDP (e.g., [RFC1234]), Ascend Tunnel
   Management Protocol (ATMP) [RFC2107], and IPv6-in-IPv4 [RFC2893]
   tunnels, among others.

   Extension MIB modules may be designed for managing protocol-specific
   objects.  Likewise, extension MIB modules may be designed for
   managing security-specific objects (e.g., IPsec [RFC2401]), and
   traffic conditioner [RFC2474] objects.
