TELNET OUTPUT LINEFEED DISPOSITION

1. Command name and code

NAOLFD 16

(Negotiate About Output Linefeed Disposition)

2. Command meanings

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

the NAOL and NAOP Telnet Options.

IAC DO NAOLFD

The data sender requests or agrees to negotiate about output

linefeed 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

linefeed considerations.

IAC DON'T NAOLFD

The data sender refuses to negotiate about output linefeed

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

unnegotiated default mode.

IAC WILL NAOLFD

The data receiver requests or agrees to negotiate about output

linefeed disposition 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 linefeed

considerations.

IAC WON'T NAOLFD

The data receiver refuses to negotiate about output linefeed

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

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

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

handle output linefeeds and what their disposition should be. The

code for DS is 1.

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

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

should handle output linefeeds and what their disposition should

be. The code for DR is 0.

3. Default

DON'T NAOLFD/WON'T NAOLFD.

In the default absence of negotiations concerning which party, data

under or data receiver, is handling output linefeed considerations,

neither party is required nor prohibited from handling linefeeds; but

it is appropriate if at least the data receiver handles them, albeit

primitively.

4. Motivation for the Option

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

descriptions.

5. Description of the Option

The data sender and the data receiver use the 8-bit value along with DS

and DR SB commands as follows:

linefeeds, for the connec...
