This memo is an official status report on the numbers used in protocols in the ARPA-Internet community. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
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, network number, etc., please contact Joyce to receive a number assignment.

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"  or in the old "ARPANET Protocol Handbook"  prepared by the NIC. Some of the items listed are undocumented. Further information on protocols can be found in the memo "Official ARPA-Internet Protocols" .
In all cases the name and mailbox of the responsible individual is indicated. In the lists that follow, a bracketed entry, e.g., [nn,iii], at the right hand margin of the page indicates a reference for the listed protocol, where the number ("nn") cites the document and the letters ("iii") cites the person. Whenever possible, letters are a NIC Ident as used in the WHOIS service.
The network numbers listed here are used as internet addresses by the Internet Protocol (IP) [33,77]. 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.
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 USC-ISIF.ARPA in dotted decimal is 010.002.000.052, or 10.2.0.52.
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 four catagories of users of Internet Addresses: Research, Defense, Government (Non-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: R for Research, D for Defense, G for Government, and C for Commercial (see Appendix A for further details on this division of the network identification).
Network numbers are assigned for networks that are connected to the ARPA-Internet and DDN-Internet, and for independent networks that use the IP family protocols (these are usually commercial). These independent networks are marked with an asterisk preceding the number.
The administrators of independent networks must apply separately for permission to interconnect their network with either the ARPA-Internet of the DDN-Internet. Independent networks need not be listed in the working tables of either the ARPA-Internet or DDN-Internet hosts or gateways.
For various reasons, the assigned numbers of networks are sometimes changed. To ease the transition the old number will be listed for a transition period as well. These "old number" entries will be marked with a "T" following the number and preceding the name, and the network name will be suffixed "-TEMP".
In certain contexts, it is useful to have fixed addresses with functional significance rather than as identifiers of specific hosts. When such usage is called for, the address zero is to be interpreted as meaning "this", as in "this network". The address of all ones are to be interpreted as meaning "all", as in "all hosts". For example, the address 22.214.171.124 could be
interpreted as meaning all hosts on the network 128.9. Or, the address 0.0.0.37 could be interpreted as meaning host 37 on this network.

Ports are used in the TCP [33,78] 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 [33,76].
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.

Assigned Numbers RFC 923 Autonomous System Numbers
ASSIGNED AUTONOMOUS SYSTEM NUMBERS
The Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP) [93,90] specifies that groups of gateways may form autonomous systems. The EGP provides a 16-bit field for identifying such systems. The values of this field are registered here.
The ARPANET facility for "logical addressing" is described in RFC 878 . A portion of the possible logical addresses are reserved for standard uses.
There are 49,152 possible logical host addresses. Of these, 256 are reserved for assignment to well-known functions. Assignments for well-known functions are made by Joyce Reynolds. Assignments for other logical host addresses are made by the NIC.
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 Host/IMP interface is defined in BBN Report 1822 .
The low-order 4 bits of the message-id field are called the sub-link. Unless explicitly specified otherwise for a particular protocol, there is no sender to receiver significance to the sub-link. The sender may use the sub-link in any way he chooses (it is returned in the RFNM by the destination IMP), the receiver should ignore the sub-link.

Many of the networks of all classes are IEEE 802 Networks. These systems use a Service Access Point field in much the same way the ARPANET uses the "link" field.

Class D (highest-order bits 1-1-1)
All addresses in this class are reserved for future use.
Within the Research community, 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 Research to Defense, Government or Commercial status. Thus, network identifiers may change state among Research, Defense, Government and Commercial, but the number of identifiers allocated to each use must remain within the limits indicated above. To make possible this fluid assignment, the network identifier spaces are not allocated by simple partition, but rather by specific assignment.
