Hello,

Let's say I wanted to transfer data through a WAN link from Linux to
another Linux, but with, say, pure HDLC as the data link layer (instead of
PPP, or Frame Relay, or X.25, or ...). Something like this:

IP -> Hardware (which provides HDLC) -> Link -> Hardware -> IP

Is it possible??
Disadvantages??
Comments??

This question actually came from someone else, so I'm just trying to get
opinions from other people about this "raw IP" issue.

TIA and Regards,
Ivan
