Abstract

This Network Working Group Request for Comments documents the currently assigned values from several series of numbers used in network protocol implementations. This RFC will be updated periodically, and in any case current information can be obtained from Jon Postel. The assignment of numbers is also handled by Jon. If you are developing a protocol or application that will require the use of a link, socket, etc. please contact Jon to receive a number assignment.

Most of the protocols mentioned here are documented in the RFC series of

notes. The more prominent and more generally used are documented in the

Protocol Handbook [1] prepared by the Network Information Center (NIC).

In the lists that follow a bracketed number, e.g. [1], off to the right

of the page indicates a reference to the protocol assigned that number.

Assigned Link Numbers

ASSIGNED LINK NUMBERS

The word "link" here refers to a field in the original ARPANET

Host/IMP interface leader. The link was originally defined as an 8

bit field. Some time after the ARPANET Host-to-Host (AHHP) protocol

was defined and, by now, some time ago the definition of this field

was changed to "Message-ID" and the length to 12 bits. The name link

now refers to the high order 8 bits of this 12 bit message-id field.

The low order 4 bits of the message-id field are to be zero unless

specifically specified otherwise for the particular protocol used on

that link. The Host/IMP interface is defined in BBN report 1822 [2].
