ISO Transport Protocol Specification

ISO DP 8073

Status of this Memo:

This document is distributed as an RFC for information only. It

does not specify a standard for the ARPA-Internet.

Notes:

1) RFC 892 is an older version of the ISO Transport Protocol

Specification. Therefore this RFC should be assumed to

supercede RFC 892.

2) This document has been prepared by retyping the text of

ISO/TC97/SC16/N1576 and then applying proposed editorial

corrections contained in ISO/TC97/SC16/N1695. These two

documents, taken together, are undergoing voting within ISO

as a Draft International Standard (DIS).

3) Although this RFC has been reviewed after typing, and is

believed to be substantially correct, it is possible that

typographic errors not present in the ISO documents have been

overlooked.
