Well Known Socket Numbers

The Network Measurement Group would like to establish a network

standard socket number for a Process Discard service (not all HOSTs need

cooperate.) To do this, it is necessary to know which sockets at each

HOST have already been allocated to standard network functions.

At all HOSTs which permit login for services, socket 1 is the

Network Logger on which ICP may be performed.

We would like to catalog other sockets which are supposed to be

well-known, so we would appreciate having a note or phone call from each

HOST Technical Liaison describing the function and socket numbers of

network service programs at each HOST. The catalog will be published and

we would recommend that it be maintained at NIC.
