                            ASSIGNED NUMBERS

This Network Working Group Request for Comments documents the currently
assigned values from several series of numbers used in network protocol
implementations.  This RFC will be updated periodically, and in any case
current information can be obtained from Joyce Reynolds.  The assignment
of numbers is also handled by Joyce.  If you are developing a protocol
or application that will require the use of a link, socket, port,
protocol, or network number please contact Joyce to receive a number

Most of the protocols mentioned here are documented in the RFC series of
notes.  The more prominent and more generally used are documented in the
"Internet Protocol Transition Workbook" [16] or in the old "ARPANET
Protocol Handbook" [17] prepared by the NIC.  Some of the items listed
are undocumented.  Further information on protocols can be found in the
memo "Official Protocols" [52].

In all cases the name and mailbox of the responsible individual is
indicated.  In the lists that follow, a bracketed entry, e.g., [16,iii],
at the right hand margin of the page indicates a reference for the
listed protocol, where the number cites the document and the "iii" cites
the person.

Network Numbers

                        ASSIGNED NETWORK NUMBERS

   The network numbers listed here are used as internet addresses by the
   Internet Protocol (IP) [16,47].  The IP uses a 32-bit address field
   and divides that address into a network part and a "rest" or local
   address part.  The division takes 3 forms or classes.

      The first type of address, or class A, has a 7-bit network number
      and a 24-bit local address.  The highest-order bit is set to 0.
      This allows 128 class A networks.

      |0|   NETWORK   |                Local Address                  |

                             Class A Address

      The second type of address, class B, has a 14-bit network number
      and a 16-bit local address.  The two highest-order bits are set to
      1-0.  This allows 16,384 class B networks.

      |1 0|           NETWORK         |          Local Address        |

                             Class B Address

      The third type of address, class C, has a 21-bit network number
      and a 8-bit local address.  The three highest-order bits are set
      to 1-1-0.  This allows 2,097,152 class C networks.

                           1                   2                   3

                             Class C Address

      Note:  No addresses are allowed with the three highest-order bits
      set to 1-1-1.  These addresses (sometimes called "class D") are

Network Numbers

   One commonly used notation for internet host addresses divides the
   32-bit address into four 8-bit fields and specifies the value of each
   field as a decimal number with the fields separated by periods.  This
   is called the "dotted decimal" notation.  For example, the internet
   address of ISIF in dotted decimal is, or

   The dotted decimal notation will be used in the listing of assigned
   network numbers.  The class A networks will have nnn.rrr.rrr.rrr, the
   class B networks will have nnn.nnn.rrr.rrr, and the class C networks
   will have nnn.nnn.nnn.rrr, where nnn represents part or all of a
   network number and rrr represents part or all of a local address.

   There are three catagories of users of Internet Addresses: Research,
   Defense, and Commercial.  To reflect the allocation of network
   identifiers among the categories, a one-character code is placed to
   the left of the network number (in the column marked by an asterisk):
   R for Research and Development, D for DoD, and C for Commercial.

   Numbers assigned for commercial use of IP family protocols, but not
   for interworking with the ARPA or DoD Internets are marked with an
   astrisk preceeding the number.

   For various reasons, the assigned numbers of networks are sometimes
   changed.  To ease the transition the old number will be listed as
   well.  These "old number" entries will be marked with a "T" following
   the number and preceeding the name, and the network name will be the
   suffixed "-TEMP".

Port Numbers

                         ASSIGNED PORT NUMBERS

   Ports are used in the TCP [16,48] to name the ends of logical
   connections which carry long term conversations.  For the purpose of
   providing services to unknown callers, a service contact port is
   defined.  This list specifies the port used by the server process as
   its contact port.  The contact port is sometimes called the
   "well-known port".

   To the extent possible, these same port assignments are used with the
   UDP [16,46].

   The assigned ports use a small portion of the possible port numbers.
   The assigned ports have all except the low order eight bits cleared
   to zero.  The low order eight bits are specified here.

ARPANET Link Numbers


   The word "link" here refers to a field in the original ARPANET
   Host/IMP interface leader.  The link was originally defined as an
   8-bit field.  Later specifications defined this field as the
   "Message-ID" with a length of 12 bits.  The name link now refers to
   the high order 8 bits of this 12-bit message-id field.  The low order
   4 bits of the message-id field are to be zero unless explicitly
   specified otherwise for the particular protocol used on that link.
   The Host/IMP interface is defined in BBN Report 1822 [2].

                               APPENDIX A

   This appendix summarizes the agreements reached by the DDN/PMO and
   DARPA at a September 1982 meeting concerning the allocation and
   assignment of the various numbers associated with DoD Protocol
   Standards and the DARPA Experimental Standards.

   Recommended policy is summarized for each type of number assignment
   of concern:

      Network Identifiers used by the Internet Protocol

         It is recommended that the available number spaces for class A,
         B, and C network addresses be allocated among R&D, DoD and
         commercial uses, and that assignments of these addresses be the
         responsibility respectively of DARPA, DCA PCCO/DDN and the
         National Bureau of Standards.  The recommended allocations are
         given below.

         Class A (highest-order bit 0)

            R&D allocation:          8 nets
            DoD allocation:         24 nets
            Commercial allocation:  94 nets
            Reserved Addresses:  0,127

         Class B (highest-order bits 1-0)

            R&D allocation:          1024 nets
            DoD allocation:          3072 nets
            Commercial allocation:  12286 nets
            Reserved Addresses:  0,16383

         Class C (highest-order bits 1-1-0)

            R&D allocation:           65536 nets
            DoD allocation:          458725 nets
            Commercial allocation:  1572862 nets
            Reserved Addresses:  0,2097151

         Class D (highest-order bits 1-1-1)

            All addresses in this class are reserved for future use,
            possibly in support of multicast services.  They should be
            allocated to R&D use for the present.

Reynolds & Postel                                              [Page 24]

Assigned Numbers                                                 RFC 870

         Within the R&D community, it will be the policy that network
         identifiers will only be granted to applicants who show
         evidence that they are acquiring standard Bolt Beranek and
         Newman gateway software or have implemented or are acquiring a
         gateway meeting the Exterior Gateway Protocol requirements.
         Acquisition of the Berkeley BSD 4.2 UNIX software might be
         considered evidence of the latter.

         Experimental networks which later become operational need not
         be renumbered.  Rather, the identifiers could be moved from R&D
         to DoD or Commercial status.  Thus, network identifiers may
         change state among R&D, DoD and commercial, but the number of
         identifiers allocated to each use should remain within the
         limits indicated above.  To make possible this fluid
         assignment, it is recommended that the network identifier
         spaces not be allocated by simple partition but rather by
         specific assignment.

      Protocol Identifiers

         In general, all assignments will be made by the R&D community,
         but any numbers which become R&D, DoD, national or
         international standards will be marked as such in this RFC.

         Protocol identifiers 0 and 255 are reserved.

         95 protocol identifiers are allocated for assignment to DoD
         standards, 32 for R&D use, and 127 for Commercial, national or
         international standards.

      Port Numbers

         A recommendation for allocation and assignment of port numbers
         is to be developed jointly by representatives of the ICCB and

      ARPANET Link Numbers

         All unnecessary link number usage will be eliminated by joint
         effort of the ICCB, PSTP and BBN.

         BBN will give consideration to the use of link numbers to
         promote interoperability among various ARPANET interfaces and
         report to the ICCB, PSTP and DDN/PMO.  Examples of possible
         interoperability issues are:
            (i)   interoperability of 1822 and X.25 interfaces
            (ii)  interoperability of SIP and other interfaces
            (iii) logical addressing or other special services

Reynolds & Postel                                              [Page 25]

Assigned Numbers                                                 RFC 870

      IP Version Numbers

         These numbers will be assigned only by the R&D community for
         the purpose of exploring alternatives in internet protocol
         service expansion, such as inclusion of stream protocol (ST)

      TCP, IP and Telnet Option Identifiers

         These numbers will be assigned by the R&D community.  Any
         permanent or experimental assignments will be identified in the
         documents specifying those protcols.


      This policy recommendation has not been fully implemented as yet.
      Currently, Joyce Reynolds is acting coordinator for all number
