Notes

This memo is a report on the Gateway Special Interest Group Meeting
that was held at ISI on 28 and 29 February 1984. Robert Hinden of
BBNCC chaired, and Jon Postel of ISI hosted the meeting.
Approximately 35 gateway designers and implementors attended. These
notes are based on the recollections of Jon Postel and Mike Muuss.
Under each topic area are Jon Postel's brief notes, and additional
details from Mike Muuss. This memo is a report on a meeting. No
conclusions, decisions, or policy statements are documented in this
note.

897 Postel Feb 84 Domain Name System Implementation
Schedule

This memo is a policy statement on the implementation of the Domain
Style Naming System in the Internet. This memo is a partial update
of RFC 881. The intent of this memo is to detail the schedule for
the implementation for the Domain Style Naming System. The names of
hosts will be changed to domain style names. Hosts will begin to use
domain style names on 14-Mar-84, and the use of old style names will
be completely phased out before 2-May-84. This applies to both the
ARPA research hosts and the DDN operational hosts. This is an
official policy statement of the ICCB and the DARPA.

854 Postel May 83 Telnet Protocol Specifications

This is the specification of the Telnet protocol used for remote
terminal access in the ARPA Internet. The purpose of the TELNET
Protocol is to provide a fairly general, bi-directional, eight-bit
byte oriented communications facility. Its primary goal is to allow
a standard method of interfacing terminal devices and
terminal-oriented processes to each other. It is envisioned that the
protocol may also be used for terminal-terminal communication
('linking') and process-process communication (distributed
computation). This RFC specifies a standard for the ARPA Internet
community. Hosts on the ARPA Internet are expected to adopt and
implement this standard. Obsoletes NIC 18639.

853 Not issued yet.

852 Malis Apr 83 The ARPANET Short Blocking Feature

This RFC specifies the ARPANET Short Blocking Feature, which will
allow ARPANET hosts to optionally shorten the IMP's host blocking
timer. This Feature is a replacement of the ARPANET non-blocking
host interface, which was never implemented, and will be available to
hosts using either the 1822 or 1822L Host Access Protocol. This RFC
is also being presented as a solicitation of comments on the Short
Blocking Feature, especially from host network software implementers
and maintainers.

easily accessible to researchers in the ARPA community. It does not
specify an Internet standard. This RFC defines the standard format
for interchange of Network News articles among USENET sites. It
describes the format for articles themselves, and gives partial
standards for transmission of news. The news transmission is not
entirely standardized in order to give a good deal of flexibility to
the individual hosts to choose transmission hardware and software,
whether to batch news and so on.




Postel & Westine [page 9]



RFC 899 May 1984


849 Crispin May 83 Suggestions for Improved Host Table
Distribution

This RFC actually is a request for comments. The issue dealt with is
that of a naming registry update procedure, both as exists currently
and what could exist in the future. None of the proposed solutions
are intended as standards at this time; rather it is hoped that a
general consensus will emerge as the appropriate solution, leaving
eventually to the adoption of standards.

This RFC describes the portion of fault isolation and recovery which
is the responsibility of the host.

815 Clark Jul 82 IP Datagram Reassembly Algorithms

This RFC describes an alternate approach of dealing with reassembly
which reduces the bookkeeping problem to a minimum, and requires only
one buffer for storage equal in size to the final datagram being
reassembled, which can reassemble a datagram from any number of
fragments arriving in any order with any possible pattern of overlap
and duplication, and which is appropriate for almost any sort of
operating system.

814 Clark Jul 82 Name, Addresses, Ports, and Routes

This RFC gives suggestions and guidance for the design of the tables
and algorithms necessary to keep track of these various sorts of
identifiers inside a host implementation of TCP/IP.

813 Clark Jul 82 Window and Acknowledgement Strategy in
TCP

This RFC describes implementation strategies to deal with two
mechanisms in TCP, the window and the acknowledgement. It also
presents a particular set of algorithms which have received testing
in the field, and which appear to work properly with each other.
With more experience, these algorithms may become part of the formal
specification, until such time their use is recommended.

network and gateway name to address correspondence, and host
operating system information. This RFC obsoletes the host table
described in RFC 608.

809 Chang Feb 82 UCL Facsimile System

This RFC describes the features of the computerised facsimile system
developed in the Department of Computer Science at UCL. First its
functions are considered and the related experimental work are
reported. Then the disciplines for system design are discussed.
Finally, the implementation of the system are described, while
detailed description are given as appendices.

808 Postel Mar 82 Summary of Computer Mail Services
Meeting Held at BBN on 10 January 1979

This RFC is a very belated attempt to document a meeting that was
held three years earlier to discuss the state of computer mail in the
ARPA community and to reach some conclusions to guide the further
development of computer mail systems such that a coherent total mail
service would continue to be provided.

807 Postel Feb 82 Multimedia Mail Meeting Notes

This RFC consists of notes from a meeting held at USC Information
Sciences Institute on the 12th of January to discuss common interests
in multimedia computer mail issues and to agree on some specific
initial experiments.

RFC 899 May 1984


806 NBS Sep 81 Specification for Message Format for
Computer Based Message Systems

This RFC deals with Computer Based Message systems which provides a
basis for interaction between different CBMS by defining the format
of messages passed between them. This RFC is replaced by RFC 841.

805 Postel Feb 82 Computer Mail Meeting Notes

This RFC consists of notes from a meeting that was held at USC
Information Sciences Institute on 11 January 1982, to discuss
addressing issues in computer mail. The major conclusion reached at
the meeting is to extend the 'username@hostname' mailbox format to
'username@host.domain', where the domain itself can be further
strutured.

804 CCITT Jan 82 CCITT Draft Recommendation T.4

This is the CCITT standard for group 3 facsimile encoding. This is
useful for data compression of bit map data.

803 Agarwal Nov 81 Dacom 450/500 Facsimile Data
Transcoding

The first part of this RFC describes in detail the Dacom 450 data
compression algorithms and is an update and correction to an earlier
memorandum. The second part of this RFC describes briefly the Dacom
500 data compression algorithm as used by the INTELPOST
electronic-mail network under development by the US Postal Service
and several foreign administrators.

802 Malis Nov 81 The ARPANET 1822L Host Access Protocol

This document proposed two major changes to the current ARPANET host
access protocol. The first change will allow hosts to use logical
addressing (i.e., host addresses that are independent of their
physical location on the ARPANET) to communicate with each other, and
the second will allow a host to shorten the amount of time that it
may be blocked by its IMP after it presents a message to the network
(currently, the IMP can block further input from a host for up to 15
seconds). See RFCs 852 and 851.

801 Postel Nov 81 NCP/TCP Transition Plan

This RFC discusses the conversion of hosts from NCP to TCP. And
making available the principle services: Telnet, File Transfer, and
Mail. These protocols allow all hosts in the ARPA community to share
a common interprocess communication environment.
