One physical network can carry multiple logical networks. Moreover,
we can use multiple physical networks at the same time in a host. In
that environment, end-hosts might have multiple IP addresses and be
required to use them selectively. Without an appropriate source/
destination address selection mechanism, the host will experience
some trouble in the communication. RFC 3484 defines both the source
and destination address selection algorithms, but the multi-prefix
environment considered here needs additional rules beyond the default
operation. This document describes the possible problems that end-
hosts could encounter in an environment with multiple logical

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
