 Could someone tell me what telnet options 32 and 94 are, and which
 RFC's are associated with them? We've got a host (a dec-20 running
 tops) which is returning them, causing my workstatio (a xerox 1186) to
 lose... I couldn't find them anywhere in Assigned Numbers or in the
 DDN Handbook.

There is no authorized use of Telnet option codes 32 or 94. However, your
workstation should not "lose". It should be able to decline any telnet option
it does not understand, even if that option is not previously known.
