Introduction

This Network Working Group Request for Comments documents the

currently assigned values from several series of numbers used in

network protocol implementations. This RFC will be updated

periodically, and in any case current information can be obtained

from Joyce Reynolds. If you are developing a protocol or application

that will require the use of a link, socket, port, protocol, etc.,

please contact Joyce to receive a number assignment.

Most of the protocols mentioned here are documented in the RFC series

of notes. Some of the items listed are undocumented. Further

information on protocols can be found in the memo "Official Internet

Protocols" [91]. The more prominent and more generally used are

documented in the "DDN Protocol Handbook, Volume Two, DARPA Internet

Protocols" [36] prepared by the NIC. Other collections of older or

obsolete protocols are contained in the "Internet Protocol Transition

Workbook" [57], or in the "ARPANET Protocol Transition Handbook"

[38]. For further information on ordering the complete 1985 DDN

Protocol Handbook, write: SRI International (SRI-NIC), DDN Network

Information Center, Room EJ291, 333 Ravenswood Avenue, Meno Park,

In the entries below, the name and mailbox of the responsible

individual is indicated. The bracketed entry, e.g., [nn,iii], at the

RFC 1010 - Assigned Numbers May 1987

right hand margin of the page indicates a reference for the listed

protocol, where the number ("nn") cites the document and the letters

("iii") cites the person. Whenever possible, the letters are a NIC

Ident as used in the WhoIs (NICNAME) service.

The convention in the documentation of Internet Protocols is to

express numbers in decimal and to picture data in "big-endian" order

[14]. That is, fields are described left to right, with the most

significant octet on the left and the least significant octet on the

right.

The order of transmission of the header and data described in this

document is resolved to the octet level. Whenever a diagram shows a

group of octets, the order of transmission of those...
