                          New HOST-HOST Protocol

   Attached is a copy of the paper to be presented at the SJCC on the    HOST-HOST Protocol.  It indicates many changes from the old protocol    in NWG/RFC 11; these changes resulted from the network meeting on    December 8, 1969.  The attached document does not contain enough    information to write a NCP, and I will send out another memo or so    shortly.  Responses to this memo are solicited, either as NWG/RFC's    or personal notes to me.
