In 2019 I'm reading one RFC a day in chronological order starting from the very first one. More on this project here. There is a table of contents for all my RFC posts.

RFC-104 is titled “Link 191”. It's authored by Jon Postel and Steve Crocker, dated Feburary 25th, 1971.

A business note: my ten-month Mozilla Fellowship has supported this project up until now, but that has ended. If you like what I'm doing here, please consider supporting me via my Patreon.

The technical content

This is a very short RFC. Postel and Crocker are letting everyone know that link 191 will henceforth be used for measuring network traffic. Anyone who wants to use that physical link will need to get permission from the Network Measurement Center..
