Network Working Group W. Simpson Request for Comments: 1552 Daydreamer Category: Standards Track December 1993

The PPP Internetwork Packet Exchange Control Protocol (IPXCP)

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 and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

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.

1. Introduction

PPP has three main components:

1. A method for encapsulating multi-protocol datagrams.

2. A Link Control Protocol (LCP) for establishing, configuring, and testing the data-link connection.

3. A family of Network Control...
