Abstract

Bill's suggestion is a good one; however, my current policy is to encourage the most rapid implementation of the protocol in document #1, and his suggested modification should be delayed. It seems to me most important to gain experience using the network before making changes to the protocol which are not dictated by necessity. (I polled several sites regarding Bill's suggestion. Sites with NCP implementations under way tended to agree with this policy, while sites further behind tended to desire Bill's suggested change.)

Response to NWM/RFC #67

Bill's suggestion is a good one; however, my current policy is to

encourage the most rapid implementation of the protocol in document

#1, and his suggested modification should be delayed. It seems to me

most important to gain experience using the network before making

changes to the protocol which are not dictated by necessity. (I

polled several sites regarding Bill's suggestion. Sites with NCP

implementations under way tended to agree with this policy, while

sites further behind tended to desire Bill's suggested change.)

With respect to changes, in general, I believe that changes are

necessary to improve the efficiency, provide greater flexibility, and

guarantee reliability. Many of us can suggest changes now, but I

suspect that clearer ideas will emerge from usage.
