New Version Notification for draft-patterson-intarea-ipoe-health-02.txt
Thanks for the comments on and off the v6ops list, we've published a
new version of draft-patterson-intarea-ipoe-health.
The major changes can summarised as:
- Emphasised preference for use of BFD echo as the health check mechanism.
- Removed lifetime expiration from Behaviour 2 and clarified usage.
- Updated Behaviour 3 with instructions for whilst mid-renew/rebind.
- Reworded multihoming section.
- Added Acknowledgements.
Please continue providing feedback, and if anyone has a relationship
with DHCP client developers, or CPE vendors, we'd love to start a
dialogue there too.
PPP over Ethernet clients have the functionality to detect path
unavailability by using PPP Keepalives. IP over Ethernet does not
have this functionality, and it's not specified when an IP over
Ethernet client should consider its WAN connectivity down, unless
there is a physical layer link down event.
This document describes a way for IP over Ethernet clients to achieve
connectivity validation, similar to that of PPP over Ethernet, by
using BFD Echo, or ARP and Neighbor Discovery functions.
Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
