Network Working Group Jon Postel (UCLA-NMC) Request for Comments: 433 Nancy Neigus (BBN) NIC 13491 22 December 1972 Categories: Socket Numbers References: 349 Socket Number List The czar of socket numbers [Jon Postel] has established the following assignments for socket numbers used for public functions. Note that a socket number is a 40 bit quantity, the first 8 bits being the host specification, the next 24 bits being site specific, and the last 8 bits being user specified - these last 8 bits are called the AEN [it stands for, cleverly enough, Another Eightbit Number]. For the assignments here the value in the host field ranges across all hosts (unless otherwise specified), the value in the 24 bit field is zero, and the AEN is indicated here. General Assignments: Sockets Assignment 0 - 63 Network Wide Standard Functions 64 - 127 Host Specific Functions 128 - 239 Reserved for Future Use 240 - 255 Any Experimental Function Particular Assignments: Socket Assignment 1 Telnet 3 File Transfer 5 Remote Job Entry 7 Echo 9 Discard 19 Character Generator [e.g. TTYTST] 65 Speech Data Base @ ll-tx-2 (74) 67 Datacomputer @ cca (31) 241 NCP Measurement 243 Survey Measurement 245 LINK The specifications for the assigned functions can be found in the documents listed here: Postel and Neigus [Page 1]

We hope we can resolve this problem with a minimum of disruption. The following is a tabulation of socket numbers together with the services offered. This listing is presented as an aid to network users.
