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.

Initial connection correction

RFC-145 is titled “Initial Connection Protocol Control Commands” and is by Jon Postel of UCLA. It's dated May 4th, 1971.

The technical content

This updates Postel's RFC-127 Initial Connection Protocol algorithm to correct for an error pointed out by Eric Harslem of RAND. It does not address the issue brought up in RFC-143.
