Abstract

Since the publication of RFC #318 there have been a great number of proposals for changes and/or extensions to the (still unofficial) TELNET Protocol. It now seems appropriate to have a meeting of concerned parties to try, once again, to reach a consensus position and define an "official" protocol (with perhaps, some room for optional expansion).

TELNET Protocol Meeting Announcement

Since the publication of RFC #318 there have been a great number of

proposals for changes and/or extensions to the (still unofficial) TELNET

Protocol. It now seems appropriate to have a meeting of concerned

parties to try, once again, to reach a consensus position and define an

"official" protocol (with perhaps, some room for optional expansion).

Accordingly, I hereby announce a TELNET Protocol meeting to be held at

UCLA on Monday, March 5. I expect this to be a working meeting (rather

than a tutorial to bring new members of the network community up-to-

speed) and therefore wish to invite the attendance of only those

individuals prepared to discuss at LEAST those issues which have already

been raised. At a minimum, attendees should be familiar with the

following:

RFC 318

RFC 328

RFC 340

RFC 357

RFC 393

RFC 426

RFC 435

A familiarity with deliberations of the TELNET Committee prior to RFC

318 would probably also be helpful. Finally, attendees should be aware

that there are few (no?) Hosts which follow the echo-control conventions

described in RFC 318.

Anyone wishing to attend this meeting should contact Alex McKenzie at

BBN (NIC ident aam) 50 Moulton Street, Cambridge, Mass. 02l38. My

telephone number is

(617) 491-1850 ext. 441

When there is some indication of the number of individuals planning to

attend, a meeting room will be selected, a time announced, etc.
