This report describes two sets of protocols implemented on DTNSRDCs Hyperchannel based local area network. The first protocol set facilitates local area network connections among arbitrary processes running on computers attached to DTNSRDCs Hyperchannel network. The second protocol set provides a mechanism for allowing local area network hosts computers connected via the Hyperchannel to store, retrieve, and delete files on other network hosts. The base protocol implemented on the Hyperchannel is a general purpose network connection management protocol. The network connection protocol NCP is intended to allow any network host to support up to 255 simultaneous logical connections between itself and remote hosts. This protocol makes no specific provisions to ensure data integrity or flow control. Instead, the Hyperchannel hardware is relied upon to provide these services. In most cases this will be sufficient. Originator-supplied keywords include Local area networking, Transport protocol, File transfer.
