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.

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 t...
