TELNET OUTPUT HORIZONTAL TAB DISPOSITION OPTION

1. Command name and code

NAOHTD 12

(Negotiate About Output Horizontal Tab Disposition)

2. Command meanings

In the following, we are discussing a simplex connection, as described in

the NAOL and NAOP Telnet options.

IAC DO NAOHTD

The data sender requests or agrees to negotiate about output

horizontal tab character disposition with the data receiver. In the

case where agreement has been reached and in the absence of further

subnegotiations, the data receiver is assumed to be handling output

horizontal tab character considerations.

IAC DON'T NAOHTD

The data sender refuses to negotiate about output horizontal tab

characters with the data receiver, or demands a return to the

unnegotiated default mode.

IAC WILL NAOHTD

The data receiver requests or agrees to negotiate about output

horizontal tab characters with the sender. In the case where

agreement has been reached and in the absence of further

subnegotiations, the data receiver alone is assumed to be handling

output horizontal tab character considerations.

IAC WON'T NAOHTD

The data receiver refuses to negotiate about output horizontal tab

characters, or demands a return to the unnegotiated default mode.

IAC SB NAOHTD DS <8-bit value> IAC SE

The data sender specifies, with the 8-bit value, which party should

handle output horizontal tab characters and what their disposition

should be. The code for DS is 1.

IAC SB NAOHTD DR <8-bit value> IAC SE

The data receiver specifies, with the 8-bit value, which party

should handle output horizontal tab characters and what their

disposition should be. The code for DR is 0.

3. Default

DON'T NAOHTD/WON'T NAOHTD.

In the default absence of negotiations concerning which party, data

sender or data receiver, is handling output horizontal tab character

considerations, neither party is required to handle horizontal tab

characters and neither party is prohibited from handling them; but it

is appropriate if at least the data receiver handles horizontal tab

character considerations, albeit primitively.

4. Motivation for the Option

Please refer to section 4 of the NAOL and of the NAOP Telnet option

descriptions.
