This memo obsoletes RFC 1700 (STD 2) "Assigned Numbers", which
contained an October 1994 snapshot of assigned Internet protocol
From November 1977 through October 1994, the Internet Assigned
Numbers Authority (IANA) periodically published tables of the
Internet protocol parameter assignments in RFCs entitled, "Assigned
Numbers". The most current of these Assigned Numbers RFCs had
Standard status and carried the designation: STD 2. At this time,
the latest STD 2 is RFC 1700.
Since 1994, this sequence of RFCs have been replaced by an online
database accessible through a web page (currently, www.iana.org).
The purpose of the present RFC is to note this fact and to officially
obsolete RFC 1700, whose status changes to Historic. RFC 1700 is
obsolete, and its values are incomplete and in some cases may be
We expect this series to be revived in the future by the new IANA
