                            ASSIGNED NUMBERS


This Network Working Group Request for Comments documents the currently
assigned values from several series of numbers used in network protocol
implementations.  This RFC will be updated periodically, and in any case
current information can be obtained from Jon Postel.  The assignment of
numbers is also handled by Jon.  If you are developing a protocol or
application that will require the use of a link, socket, port, protocol,
or network number please contact Jon to receive a number assignment.

Most of the protocols mentioned here are documented in the RFC series of
notes.  The more prominent and more generally used are documented in the
Protocol Handbook [17] prepared by the Network Information Center (NIC).
Some of the items listed are undocumented.  In all cases the name and
mailbox of the responsible individual is indicated.  In the lists that
follow a bracketed entry, e.g. [17,iii], at the right hand margin of the
page indicates a reference for the listed protocol, where the number
cites the document and the "iii" cites the person.

RFC 776 January 1981 Assigned Numbers Port or Socket Numbers ASSIGNED PORT or SOCKET NUMBERS Ports are used in the TCP [34] and sockets are used in the AHHP [28,17] to name the ends of logical connections which carry long term conversations. For the purpose of providing services to unknown callers a service contact socket is defined. This list specifies the port or socket used by the server process as its contact socket. In the AHHP an Initial Connection Procedure ICP [39,17] is used between the user process and the server process to make the initial contact and establish the long term connections leaving the contact socket free to handle other callers. In the TCP no ICP is necessary since a port may engage in many simultaneous connections. The assigned ports/sockets use a small part of the possible port/socket numbers. The assigned ports/sockets have all except the low order eight bits cleared to zero. The low order eight bits are specified here.

The link was originally defined as an 8 bit field. Some time after the ARPANET Host-to-Host (AHHP) protocol was defined and, by now, some time ago the definition of this field was changed to "Message-ID" and the length to 12 bits. The name link now refers to the high order 8 bits of this 12 bit message-id field. The low order 4 bits of the message-id field are to be zero unless specifically specified otherwise for the particular protocol used on that link. The Host/IMP interface is defined in BBN report 1822 [1].
