Abstract:

A file transfer service provides for transferring files between network hosts. This document, prepared by Digital Technology Inc. under subcontract to System Development Corporation, specifies a file transfer service for Department of Defense use. The file transfer service is organized as three categories of services 1 Basic Services, 2 File Protocol Services, and 3 Virtual File System Services. This organization increases the flexibility of the file transfer service. Service primitives that implement the file transfer service are also defined. Finally, the document also describes the services that the file transfer service requires from lower network service layers. Author
