Network Working Group V. Cerf Request for Comments #322 J. Postel NIC #9609 UCLA-NMC 26 March 72
Well Known Socket Numbers
The Network Measurement Group would like to establish a network standard socket number for a Process Discard service (not all HOSTs need cooperate.) To do this, it is necessary to know which sockets at each HOST have already been allocated to standard network functions.
At all HOSTs which permit login for services, socket 1 is the Network Logger on which ICP may be performed.
We would like to catalog other sockets which are supposed to be well-known, so we would appreciate having a note or phone call from each HOST Technical Liaison describing the function and socket numbers of network service programs at each HOST. The catalog will be published and we would recommend that it be maintained at NIC.
