Specification Changes for OLS, RJE/RJOR, and SMFS
The following documents are hereby revised:
(1) ’Specifications for Network Use of the UCSB On-Line System [16 October 70, RFC 74, NIC 5417],
(2) ’Network Specifications for Remote Job Entry and Remote Job Output Retrieval at UCSB’ [22 March 71, RFC 105, NIC 5775], and

(2) In accordance with subsequent Host-Host protocol changes, the notion of ’message type’ has been dropped from the specifications for RJE and RJOR, RFC 105. RJE/RJOR no longer send, nor expect to receive 8 bits of zeros as the first byte trans- mitted over a connection.
(3) In accordance with Document 2, RJE and RJOR now employ a standard ICP to create a full duplex connection to the user. Accordingly, RJE and RJOR listen on sockets x’201’ and x’301’, respectively (rather than on x’200’ and x’300’ as before). As documented in RFC 105, RJE required only a simplex connection to the user. A full duplex connection is now supported, but no data is transmitte...
