Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) can be used to set up
Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) and Multipoint-to-Multipoint (MP2MP)
Label Switched Paths.  However, the specification for the Multipoint
Extensions to LDP presupposes that the two endpoints of an LDP session
are directly connected.  The LDP base specification allows for the
case where the two endpoints of an LDP session are not directly
connected; such a session is known as a "Targeted LDP" session.
This document provides the specification for using the LDP Multipoint
Extensions over a Targeted LDP session.

This document is a product of the Multiprotocol Label Switching Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: 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
