The Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Path (LSP)
Ping and Traceroute use the Reply Mode field to signal the method to
be used in the MPLS echo reply.  This document updates the procedures
for the "Reply via Specified Path" Reply Mode.  The value of this
Reply Mode is 5.  The update creates a simple way to indicate that
the reverse LSP should be used as the return path.  This document
also adds an optional TLV that can carry an ordered list of Reply
Mode values.

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

This is now a Proposed Standard.
