Network Working Group N. Neigus Request for Comments: 503 J. Postel NIC: 15747 13 April 1973 References: 349, 433 Socket Number List This is a second pass at the specification of the socket numbers. More sockets have been made available for experimental functions, some new sockets have been assigned for network standard functions, host specific functions and experimental functions, and the list of available sockets for server hosts has been updated. Following are the current 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 al 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 - 223 Reserved for Future Use 224 - 255 Any Experimental Function Neigus, et. al.

We hope we can resolve these conflicts with a minimum of disruption. Neigus, et. al. [Page 2]
