This document describes Automatic Multicast Tunneling (AMT), a
protocol for delivering multicast traffic from sources in a
multicast-enabled network to receivers that lack multicast
connectivity to the source network.  The protocol uses UDP
encapsulation and unicast replication to provide this functionality.

The AMT protocol is specifically designed to support rapid deployment
by requiring minimal changes to existing network infrastructure.

This document is a product of the MBONE Deployment 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 Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
