Specification of Berkeley networking utilities

20 Oct 88 10:51:37 GMT

Is there a public domain specification of the Berkeley networking
utilities such as rlogin?

The type of question that I would expect to be able to answer given a
specification is the use made out-of-band data in rlogin for example.

A second and related question is why does the SunOS 4.0 implementation
of rlogin and rsh reject connections with client port numbers in the
range 0-512? My desire for specification of the interoperability
requirements of these networking utilities was partly prompted by the
failure of our local rlogin implementation to interwork with the new
Sun implementation.
