                           Protocol Information

   This file contains information on the various protocols in the ARPA    Network.  An effort will be made to keep the information current, but    this depends on the cooperation of the users of this file to convey    any information about protocol developments, or corrections to this    information to Jon Postel at SRI-ARC.

   This is a compendium of all the protocol related activity and most of    this activity is with experimental protocols, for those protocols,    which are official standards the designation "[Official]" will be    appended to the name.

   Much of the documentation of protocols appears as Requests for    Comments (RFCs) and many of these are available online.  When a    document is accessible online, a pointer to that source will be    given.  Also note that recent RFCs are online at Office-1 in    directory <NETINFO> with names of the form RFCnnn.TXT where nnn is    replaced by the RFC number.

   This file is online as:

      Pathname: [SRI-ARC] <POSTEL> PROTOCOL-INFORMATION.TXT
