Abstract:

This report specifies the attachment of an X.25 host to the Defense Data Network DDN. In particular, this report describes specific options and features of CCITT Recommendation X.25 1980 and Federal Information Processing Standard FIPS 100Federal Standard Fed. Std. 1041 July 1983 required of a host X.25 implementation to enable that host to communicate with a DDN X.25 Interface Message Processor C IMP, the DDN packet switching node. This report, in conjunction with FIPS 100Fed. Std. 1041, should enable DDN host site and others planning to attach a host bv means of X.25, rather than the 1822 interface, to determine, first, whether or not the X.25 implementation of the host in question is adequate for operation with DDN, and, second, what options, parameter settings, etc., must or may be selected for operation with DDN.
