Although it's still in the embryonic stage, some work's being done
to specify and implement a TCP socket for ISO session. This is
misleading, actually the approach is to present a Transport-Service
Access Point (TSAP) to applications which run over TCP/IP
internetworks. A draft RFC is in the writing and a prototype 4.2BSD
implementation is running now. Of course, until I can get my hands
on some real ISO session/presentation/application programs, I really
can't judge the merits of the approach.
Along separate lines, I had heard (third hand, sigh) that Berkeley
was going to be working on ISO stuff for a future release of BSD
UNIX and that they thought they might try their hand at a TCP/TP4
gateway as a way of familiarizing themselves with the ISO protocols!
Now this same third hand source gave me some bum information on
another topic dealing with Berkeley and networking, so I won't put
too much faith on it until someone from UCB says something.
