Re: Looking for "cisco hdlc" docs

As far as I know there is no RFC describing "Cisco HDLC". There is an old

Usenet News posting from Bill Westfield which describes the basic frame

format, available at

http://www.nethelp.no/net/cisco-hdlc.txt

With respect to error handling, Cisco HDLC is like standard HDLC - a 16

or 32 bit CRC, no retransmission (a CRC error causes the frame to be

dropped, retransmission must be handled by higher layer protocols).
