Tentative Schedule for the New
TELNET Implementation for the TIP
Implementation of the New TELNET Protocol has now become the top
priority item on the TIP development queue. Because what is done in the
TIP potentially affects what is done at a number of hosts, below we give
the implementation schedule to which we hope to adhere.
- July 18, 1975 -- Done with the basic design. A version of the TIP
which has a general version of the option negotiator, but refuses
all options, operational.
- Mid-September, 1975 -- Design of the options done. A version of
the TIP which includes any modifications that are necessary to
support the options operational.
- Mid-November -- Operational version of the TIP with the basic set
of options implemented (Binary Transmission, Echo, Suppress Go-
Ahead, Timing Mark, RCTE).
- End of 1975 -- Any problems with hosts worked out, any necessary
revisions done, and a solid version of the TIP up and running the
TELNET Protocol with options.
