Abstract

The Socket which supports the TIP News Facility has been changed to socket 367 (Octal) at BBN-TENEX. TIP users should be uneffected by this change since the TIP program has already been changed to ICP to the new socket. Because some user TELNET programs have been implemented a "news" command, the old socket will be maintained until April 15, 1973 to give implementers time to change to the new socket.
