Abstract : This document provides the functional specification of the Terminal-To-Host Protocol (THP) as used in the AUTODIN II packet switched Network. THP provides the user (human or process) interface into the AUTODIN II protocol structure. Through a THP Command Language (TCL), a user requests and controls Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) services, and THP data packaging and Network Virtual Terminal (NVT) services. The NVT service will permit limited data exchange between normally incompatible terminals and/or host processes. This document also contains many examples of the THP design and implementation in the AUTODIN II MCCU.
