|Deflate, PPP PKZIP Deflate Protocol|
|Protocol type:||PPP compression protocol.|
|Working groups:||pppext, Point-to-Point Protocol Extensions.|
Used for compressing PPP encapsulated packets.
RFC 1979, pages 1 - 3:
This document describes the use of the PPP Deflate compression protocol for compressing PPP encapsulated packets
The 'deflate' compression format, as used by the PKZIP and gzip compressors and as embodied in the freely and widely distributed zlib library source code.
The deflate format and compression algorithm are based on Lempel-Ziv LZ77 compression; extensive research has been done by the GNU Project and the Portable Network Graphics working group supporting its patent free status.
Before any PPP Deflate packets may be communicated, PPP must reach the Network-Layer Protocol phase, and the CCP Control Protocol must reach the Opened state.
A file compression utility.
A file uncompression utility for PKZIP compressed files.
