RFC 1620 Internet Architecture Extensions for Shared Media
 
Authors:B. Braden, J. Postel, Y. Rekhter.
Date:May 1994
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1620
The original Internet architecture assumed that each network is labeled with a single IP network number. This assumption may be violated for shared media, including "large public data networks"(LPDNs). The architecture still works if this assumption is violated, but it does not have a means to prevent multiple host- router and router-router hops through the shared medium. This memo discusses alternative approaches to extending the Internet architecture to eliminate some or all unnecessary hops.

Authors:R. Colella, R. Callon, E. Gardner, Y. Rekhter.
Date:May 1994
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoletes:RFC 1237
Status:DRAFT STANDARD
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1629
CLNP is currently being deployed in the Internet. This is useful to support OSI and DECnet(tm) traffic. In addition, CLNP has been proposed as a possible IPng candidate, to provide a long-term solution to IP address exhaustion. Required as part of the CLNP infrastructure are guidelines for network service access point (NSAP) address assignment. This paper provides guidelines for allocatingNSAP addresses in the Internet.

The guidelines provided in this paper have been the basis for initial deployment of CLNP in the Internet, and have proven very valuable both as an aid to scaling of CLNP routing, and for address administration.

RFC 1631 The IP Network Address Translator (NAT)
 
Authors:K. Egevang, P. Francis.
Date:May 1994
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoleted by:RFC 3022
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1631
The two most compelling problems facing the IP Internet are IP address depletion and scaling in routing. Long-term and short-term solutions to these problems are being developed. The short-term solution is CIDR (Classless InterDomain Routing). The long-term solutions consist of various proposals for new internet protocols with larger addresses.

It is possible that CIDR will not be adequate to maintain the IPInternet until the long-term solutions are in place. This memo proposes another short-term solution, address reuse, that complementsCIDR or even makes it unnecessary. The address reuse solution is to place Network Address Translators (NAT) at the borders of stub domains. Each NAT box has a table consisting of pairs of local IP addresses and globally unique addresses. The IP addresses inside the stub domain are not globally unique. They are reused in other domains, thus solving the address depletion problem. The globally unique IP addresses are assigned according to current CIDR address allocation schemes. CIDR solves the scaling problem. The main advantage of NAT is that it can be installed without changes to routers or hosts. This memo presents a preliminary design for NAT, and discusses its pros and cons.

RFC 1641 Using Unicode with MIME
 
Authors:D. Goldsmith, M. Davis.
Date:July 1994
Formats:txt ps pdf
Status:EXPERIMENTAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1641
The Unicode Standard, version 1.1, and ISO/IEC 10646-1:1993(E) jointly define a 16 bit character set (hereafter referred to asUnicode) which encompasses most of the world's writing systems.However, Internet mail (STD 11, RFC 822) currently supports only 7- bit US ASCII as a character set. MIME (RFC 1521 and RFC 1522) extendsInternet mail to support different media types and character sets, and thus could support Unicode in mail messages. MIME neither definesUnicode as a permitted character set nor specifies how it would be encoded, although it does provide for the registration of additional character sets over time.

This document specifies the usage of Unicode within MIME.

RFC 1645 Simple Network Paging Protocol - Version 2
 
Authors:A. Gwinn.
Date:July 1994
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoletes:RFC 1568
Obsoleted by:RFC 1861
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1645
This RFC suggests a simple way for delivering both alphanumeric and numeric pages (one-way) to radio paging terminals. Gateways supporting this protocol, as well as SMTP, have been in use for several months for nationwide paging and messaging. In addition, email filters and SNPP client software for Unix and Windows are available at no cost. Please contact the author for more information.

Earlier versions of this specification were reviewed by IESG members and the "822 Extensions" Working Group. They preferred an alternate strategy, as discussed under "Relationship to Other IETF Work", below.

 
RFC 1646 TN3270 Extensions for LUname and Printer Selection
 
Authors:C. Graves, T. Butts, M. Angel.
Date:July 1994
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1646
This document describes protocol extensions to TN3270. There are two extensions outlined in this document. The first defines a way by which a TN3270 client can request a specific device (LUname) from aTN3270 server. The second extension specifies how a TN3270 printer device can be requested by a TN3270 client and the manner in which the 3270 printer status information can be sent to the TN3270 server.Discussions and suggestions for improvements to these enhancements should be sent to the TN3270E Working Group mailing listTN3270E@list.nih.gov . These extensions will be called TN3287 in this document. This information is being provided to members of theInternet community that want to support the 3287 data stream within the TELNET protocol.
 
RFC 1647 TN3270 Enhancements
 
Authors:B. Kelly.
Date:July 1994
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoleted by:RFC 2355
Status:PROPOSED STANDARD
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1647
This document describes a protocol that more fully supports 3270 devices than do the existing tn3270 practices. Specifically, it defines a method of emulating both the terminal and printer members of the 3270 family of devices via Telnet; it provides for the ability of a Telnet client to request that it be assigned a specific device- name (also referred to as "LU name" or "network name"); finally, it adds support for a variety of functions such as the ATTN key, theSYSREQ key, and SNA response handling.

This protocol would be negotiated and implemented under a new TelnetOption and would be unrelated to the Telnet 3270 Regime Option as defined in RFC 1041 [1].

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) provides a standard method for transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. PPP is comprised of three main components:

1. A method for encapsulating multi-protocol datagrams.

2. A Link Control Protocol (LCP) for establishing, configuring, and testing the data-link connection.

3. A family of Network Control Protocols (NCPs) for establishing and configuring different network-layer protocols.

This document defines the PPP organization and methodology, and thePPP encapsulation, together with an extensible option negotiation mechanism which is able to negotiate a rich assortment of configuration parameters and provides additional management functions. The PPP Link Control Protocol (LCP) is described in terms of this mechanism.

RFC 1698 Octet Sequences for Upper-Layer OSI to Support Basic Communications Applications
 
Authors:P. Furniss.
Date:October 1994
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1698
This document states particular octet sequences that comprise the OSI upper-layer protocols (Session, Presentation and ACSE) when used to support applications with "basic communications requirements". These include OSI application protocols such as X.400 P7 and DirectoryAccess Protocol, and "migrant" protocols, originally defined for use over other transports.

As well as the octet sequences which are the supporting layer headers(and trailers) around the application data, this document includes some tutorial material on the OSI upper layers.

An implementation that sends the octet sequences given here, and interprets the equivalent protocol received, will be able to interwork with an implementation based on the base standard, when both are being used to support an appropriate application protocol.
