TELNET OUTPUT VERTICAL TABSTOPS OPTION

1. Command name and code

NAOVTS 14

(Negotiate About Vertcial Tabstops)

2. Command meanings

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

the NAOL and NAOP Telnet Options specifications.

IAC DO NAOVTS

The data sender requests or agrees to negotiate about output

vertical tabstops 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

vertical tabstop considerations.

IAC DON'T NAOVTS

The data sender refuses to negotiate about output vertical tabstops

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

default mode.

IAC WILL NAOVTS

The data receiver requests or agrees to negotiate about output

vertical tabstops 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 vertical tabstop

considerations.

IAC WON'T NAOVTS

The data receiver refuses to negotiate about output vertical

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

IAC SB NAOVTS DS <8-bit value> ... <8-bit value> IAC SE

The data sender specifies, with the 8-bit value(s), which party

should handle output vertical tabstop considerations and what the

stops should be. The code for DS is 1.

IAC SB NAOVTS DR <8-bit value> ... <8-bit value> IAC SE

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

should handle output vertical tabstop considerations and what the

stops should be. The code for DR is 0.

3. Default

DON'T NAOVTS/WON'T NAOVTS.

In the default absence of negotiations concerning which party, data

sender or data receiver, is handling output vertical tabstop

considerations, neither party is required to handle vertical tabstops

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

appropriate if at least the data receiver handles vertical tabstop

considerations, albeit primitively.

4. Motivation for the Option

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

descriptions.

5. Description of the Option

The data sender and the data receiver use the 8-bit value(s...
