The protocol is used for the control of network connections external to a host, but known to the host. This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community. 1306 Nicholson Mar 92 Experiences Supporting By-Request Circuit-Switched T3 Networks This memo describes the experiences of a project team at Cray Research, Inc., in implementing support for circuit-switched T3 services. While the issues discussed may not be directly relevant to the research problems of the Internet, they may be interesting to a number of researchers and implementers. This RFC provides information for the Internet community. It does not specify an Internet standard. 1305 Mills Mar 92 Network Time Protocol (Version 3): Specification, Implementation and Analysis This document describes the Network Time Protocol (NTP), specifies its formal structure and summarizes information useful for its implementation.

This memo provides information for the Internet community. It does not specify an Internet standard. 1301 Armstrong Feb 92 Multicast Transport Protocol This memo describes a protocol for reliable transport that utilizes the multicast capability of applicable lower layer networking architectures. The transport definition permits an arbitrary number of transport providers to perform realtime collaborations without requiring networking clients (aka, applications) to possess detailed knowledge of the population or geographical dispersion of the participating members. It is not network architectural specific, but does implicitly require some form of multicasting (or broadcasting) at the data link level, as well as some means of communicating that capability up through the layers to the transport. This memo provides information for the Internet community. It does not specify an Internet standard. 1300 Greenfield Feb 92 Remembrances of Things Past Poem. This memo provides information for the Internet community. It does not specify an Internet standard. Elliott Informational [Page 21]
