This paper proposes a simple IP routing solution on ATM network using IETF RFC 1577 “Classical IP and ARP over ATM”, named the LIS(Logical IP Subnetwork) Information Protocol(LIP).Originally, RFC 1577 have been specified for an application of classical IP and ARP in ATM network environment configured as an LIS. Therefore, different routing protocols are required to provide an appropriate path between LISs. Currently, the NHRP(Next Hop Resolution Protocol) or the MPOA(Multi-Protocol Over ATM) are considered as candidates. However, those protocols are too heavy or complicate to implement LIP has been devised as an alternative, which is so easy to implement because the basic concept and procedures are identical with RFC 1577. LIP includes Server-base and PVC-base routing solutions in a Large Cloud. We introduce essential function entities and routing procedures for each case. In addition, we also describe how the IP multicast services be supported between several LISs using the LIP protocol.
