Folks,
        Attached is an updated copy of the RFC sets I sent out recently.
This file is now kept in [SRI-NIC.ARPA]NETINFO:RFC-SETS.TXT, is available
via Anonymous FTP and will be updated when appropriate. If you do not
have access to FTP, send a message to me or NIC@SRI-NIC.ARPA requesting
the file. I do not plan to send the file to the entire list again after
this.

        Also attached is a new file: [SRI-NIC.ARPA]NETINFO:TCP-IP-BIB.TXT
which contains a bibliography of recent articles pertaining to TCP/IP,
X.25, TP-4, and other standards.

Cheers,
        Ole

The attached bibliography of recent articles pertaining to TCP and IP, X.25,
the Transport Protocol (TP-4), OSI and other standards was compiled by the DDN
Network Information Center (NIC) as a background reading list for vendors. The
bibliography cites articles, mostly from the open literature, representing a
variety of viewpoints. It has not been sanctioned by any government agency,
nor does it contain references to the Requests for Comments (RFCs). The NIC
does not provide copies of these articles because they are readily available in
the open literature. The NIC has copies of the DDN Protocol Handbook, the RFC
index, and the OSD (Office of the Secretary of Defense) directives pertaining
to the DoD protocol suite.
