Network Working Group W. SimpsonRequest for Comments: 1552 DaydreamerCategory: Standards Track December 1993The PPP Internetwork Packet Exchange Control Protocol (IPXCP)Status of this MemoThis document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for theInternet community, and requests discussion and suggestions forimprovements. Please refer to the current edition of the "InternetOfficial Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization stateand status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.AbstractThe Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) [1] provides a method fortransmitting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. PPPdefines an extensible Link Control Protocol, and proposes a family ofNetwork Control Protocols for establishing and configuring differentnetwork-layer protocols.The IPX protocol was originally used in Novell's NetWare products[3], and is now supported by numerous other vendors. This documentdefines the Network Control Protocol for establishing and configuringthe IPX protocol over PPP.This memo is the product of the Point-to-Point Protocol Working Groupof the IETF. Comments should be submitted to the ietf-ppp@ucdavis.edu mailing list.Simpson [Page 1]

IntroductionPPP 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 Protocols for establishing andconfiguring different network-layer protocols.In order to establish communications over a point-to-point link, eachend of the PPP link must first send LCP packets to configure and testthe data link. After the link has been established and optionalfacilities have been negotiated as needed by the LCP, PPP must sendIPXCP packets to choose and configure the IPX network-layer protocol.Once IPXCP has reached the Opened state, IPX datagrams can be sentover the link.The link will remain configured for communications until explicit LCPor IPXCP packets close the link down, or until some external eventoccurs (an inactivity timer expires or network administratorintervention).Simpson [Page 2]
