Network Working Group J. Postel Request for Comments: 770 ISI September 1980 Obsoletes RFCs: 762, 758, 755, 750, 739, 604, 503, 433, 349 Obsoletes IENs: 127, 117, 93 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, etc. please contact Jon to receive a number assignment. Jon Postel USC - Information Sciences Institute 4676 Admiralty Way Marina del Rey, California 90291 phone: (213) 822-1511 ARPANET mail: POSTEL@ISIF 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 [1] prepared by the Network Information Center (NIC). In the lists that follow a bracketed number, e.g. [1], off to the right of the page indicates a reference for the listed protocol. Postel [Page 1]

RFC 770 September 1980 Assigned Numbers Port or Socket Numbers ASSIGNED PORT or SOCKET NUMBERS Ports are used in the TCP [46] and sockets are used in the AHHP [1,3] 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 [1,34] 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 ports/assigned sockets have all except the low order eight bits cleared to zero. The low order eigth bits are specified here. Socket Assignments: General Assignments: Decimal Octal Description ------- ----- ----------- 0-63 0-77 Network Wide Standard Function 64-127 100-177 Hosts Specific Functions 128-223 200-337 Reserved for Future Use 224-255 340-377 Any Experimental Function Postel [Page 6]

RFC 770 September 1980 Assigned Numbers Link Numbers ASSIGNED LINK NUMBERS The word "link" here refers to a field in the original ARPANET Host/IMP interface leader. 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 [2].
