Comments on RFC 123

The following is my interpretation of the exchange between NCP’s which would be necessary to carry out the Initial Connection Protocol of RFC 123.

Server NCP User NCP ---------- --------

Listen for Connection on L RTS, U, L, l STR, L, U, 32 A

Send 32 bits of data in 1 message on link l A (value is S) Receive 32 bits of data from link l (value is S) A


STR, S+1, U, B STR, U+1, S, B s u

RTS, S, U+1, l RTS, U, S+1, l B c

wait for connection wait for connection

ALL, l , m , b ALL, l , m , b B B B c c c

data sent on link l data sent on link l c B

data received on link l data received on link l B c

[Page 1]

l , l , and l are links, m and m are message allocations, b A B c B c B and b are bit allocations, and all other symbols are as defined in c RFC 123.
