Abstract:

This notebook is a collection of documents that describe or specify the various protocols of the ARPA Computer Network as of December 1974. Protocols are the rules of communication between processes. The protocols defined here form a tree structure. The basic protocol described here is the IMP to Host Protocol. Built on that is the Host to Host Protocol. Then spreading out somewhat but still closely related are the process level protocols TELNET, File Transfer, Remote Job Entry, and Graphics. Interspersed along the way are a few small protocols such as the Initial Connection Protocol, and the definition of the standard character set.
