TELNET OUTPUT HORIZONTAL TABSTOPS OPTION

1. Command name and code

NAOHTS 11 (Negotiate About Output Horizontal Tabstops)

2. Command meanings

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

the NAOL and NAOP Telnet options.

IAC DO NAOHTS

The data sender requests or agrees to negotiate about output

horizontal 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

horizontal tabstops.

IAC DON'T NAOHTS

The data sender refuses to negotiate about output horizontal tabstops

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

default mode.

IAC WILL NAOHTS

The data receiver requests or agrees to negotiate about output

horizontal 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 horizontal tabstops.

IAC WON'T NAOHTS

The data receiver refuses to negotiate about output horizontal

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

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

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

handle output horizontal tabstop considerations and what the stops

should be. The code for DS is 1.

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

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

should handle output horizontal tabstop considerations and what the

stops should be. The code for DR is 0.

3. Default

DON'T NAOHTS/WON'T NAOHTS.

In the default absence of negotiations concerning which party, data

sender or data receiver, is handling output horizontal tabstops, neither

party is required to handle them and neither party is prohibited from

handling them; but it is appropriate if at least the data receiver

handles horizontal tabstops, albeit primitively.

4. Motivation for the Option

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

descriptions.

5. Description of the Option

The data sender and the data receiver use the 8-bit value(s) along with the

DS and DR SB subcommands as follows (multiple 8-bit values are allowed only

if each is greater than zero and less than 251):

8-bit value : Meaning :

0 Command sender suggests that he alone will handle

tabstops, for the connection.

1 to 250 Command sender suggests that the other party alone

should handle tabstop consid...
