Abstract

We agree with Peggy Karp (See RFC #226) that there would be some benefit in standardizing the symbolic host names used in TELNET programs. It should be recognized that there is a trade-off between brevity and mnemonicism. It is our feeling that a good set of host call letters can be developed using only four characters (see Jim White's in RFC #206.) Each host should suggest its own call letters. Upper and lower case letters should be used interchangeably. The following is our currently recommended list:

Standardization of Host Call Letters

------------------------------------

We agree with Peggy Karp (See RFC #226) that there would be some

benefit in standardizing the symbolic host names used in TELNET

programs. It should be recognized that there is a trade-off

between brevity and mnemonicism. It is our feeling that a good

set of host call letters can be developed using only four

characters (see Jim White's in RFC #206.) Each host should

suggest its own call letters. Upper and lower case letters

should be used interchangeably. The following is our currently

recommended list:
