1. Introduction

1a. Background and Purpose

 On 1 June 1989, several members of the IETF User Services Working
 Group convened an interim working group session at the JVNC
 Supercomputer Center in Princeton, NJ.  The purpose of the meeting
 was to form a distinct working group that would assemble a
 bibliography of useful information about the Internet for end users
 and for those who help end users.  The first official meeting of the
 User Documents Working Group was held at the Stanford IETF in July
 1989.  The goal of the working group was to prepare a bibliography of
 on-line and hard copy documents, reference materials, and multimedia
 training tools that address general networking information and "how
 to use the Internet".  The target audience was beginner level and
 intermediate level end users.

1b. Scope

 This bibliography is the result of volunteer work provided by members
 of the User Documents Working Group.  The intent of this effort is to
 present a representative collection of materials that will help the
 reader become familiar with the concepts of internetworking and will
 form the basis for future study.  This is, quite simply, a good place
 to start.  References to other sources of information within this
 collection of materials will be useful to readers who wish to pursue,
 in greater depth, the issues and complexities of the current
 networking environment.  Please send comments to us-wg@nnsc.nsf.net.

1c. Organization of Document

 This version of the bibliography is divided into 10 distinct
 categories of material, and each category is presented in a separate
 section:
         2  ARTICLES
         3  BIBLIOGRAPHIES
         4  BOOKS
         5  CONFERENCES AND WORKSHOPS
         6  GLOSSARIES
         7  GUIDES
         8  MULTIMEDIA
         9  NEWSLETTERS
         10 REPORTS AND PAPERS
         11 REQUESTS FOR COMMENTS (RFCs)
 Within each section, material is arranged in alphabetical order by
 author or authoring organization with the exception of Section 11:

User Documents Working Group [Page 2] RFC 1175 FYI - Bibliography August 1990

 REQUESTS FOR COMMENTS (RFCs).  The RFCs are ordered numerically.  All
 entries contain fairly standard bibliographic information and provide
 a short abstract with information on how to obtain the particular
 material addressed.
 For brand new network users, unsure of what to read first, we suggest
 reading Ed Krol's, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Internet" (listed
 in the Guide section).  For general information on an introduction to
 Internet protocols, two documents are quite useful: Charles
 Hedrick's, "Introduction to the Internet Protocols", and Doug Comer's
 textbook, "Internetworking with TCP/IP: Principles, Protocols, and
 Architecture".  Two excellent guides to existing networks are Tracy
 L.  LaQuey's, "Users' Directory of Computer Networks" and John S.
 Quarterman's "The Matrix: Computer Networks and Conferencing Systems
 Worldwide".  We strongly encourage the reader to scan the
 bibliography in its entirety as some items may be more applicable to
 personal needs or site requirements.  (Please note that in many
 instances the abstracts are excerpts, provided verbatim, from the
 material described.)

1d. Obtaining Files By Anonymous FTP

 Much of the material referenced in this bibliography is available
 on-line and can be obtained by using the File Transfer Protocol
 (FTP).  Directions on how to obtain on-line files by anonymous FTP
 action follow.  In this example, the host used is nic.ddn.mil.
 Files may be obtained with the FTP program in conjunction with an
 ANONYMOUS login.  Versions of the FTP program may vary from system to
 system, so the commands shown in this example may need to be modified
 to work on your system.
     % ftp nic.ddn.mil  <== Use the FTP program to
                                     connect to nic.ddn.mil
     Connected to nic.ddn.mil
     220 NIC.DDN.MIL FTP Server 5Z(47)-6 at Fri 23-Jun-89 09:38-PDT
 The system should respond with a message to indicate that a
 connection has been made.  Users on a Unix system will probably be
 prompted for a login name.  Type in "anonymous" as in the example
 below:
     Name (nic.ddn.mil:kbowers): anonymous
     331 ANONYMOUS user ok, send real ident as password.
     Password:      <== Type in <guest> at the password prompt
 Other systems may require the use of a "login" or "user" command to
 send the username to the server computer.  Users unsure of the

User Documents Working Group [Page 3] RFC 1175 FYI - Bibliography August 1990

 command should contact a local site representative for the specific
 commands.
 After the username and password are sent to the system, a message to
 indicate that the login has been made successfully should appear:
     230 User ANONYMOUS logged in at Fri 23-Jun-89 09:39-PDT, job 17.
 The user then connects to the directory in which the document to be
 retrieved resides. This is done with the cd command:
     ftp> cd RFC:
     331 Default name accepted. Send password to connect to it.
 The user should now be connected to the RFC: directory.  The "dir" or
 "ls" command will list the files available in this directory.
     ftp> dir
     200 Port 4.124 at host 192.33.33.51 accepted.
     150 List started.
     *** At this point a list of the files in the directory
         should appear **
     226 Transfer completed.
 The "get" command will get any file in the directory.
     ftp> get RFC821.TXT
     200 Port 4.125 at host 192.33.33.51 accepted.
     150 ASCII retrieve of TS<RFC>RFC.821.TXT.1 (49 pages) started.
     226 Transfer completed. 124482 (8) bytes transferred.
     local: RFC.821.TXT remote: RFC.821.TXT
     124482 bytes received in 55 seconds (2.2 Kbytes/s)
 The "quit" command leaves the FTP program.
     ftp> quit
     221 QUIT command received. Goodbye.

 Bell, Gordon, "Gordon Bell Calls for a U.S. Research Network," IEEE
 Spectrum, vol. 25, no. 2, pa. 54-57, IEEE Spectrum, New York, NY, Feb
 1988.
    This article is written by Gordon Bell, the former Chair of the
    FCCSET subcommittee on computer networking, infrastructure and
    digital communications.  It discusses the merits of a national
    network and the potential of such a network to trigger significant
    advances in computing and communications research.  The most
    viable solution is a national research network organized and
    maintained by the Federal government.  However, the success of
    such a venture is tied to the need for effective leadership in
    communications and a coordinated Federal science and technology
    policy.

 LaQuey, Tracy L., "Networks for Academics," Academic Computing, vol.
 4, no. 3, pp. 32-39, Academic Computing Publications, Inc., McKinney,
 TX, November 1989.
    A variety of computer networks serve academic needs at the
    nation's campuses.  Their thrusts differ significantly, and it is
    not uncommon to find campuses subscribing to multiple networks.
    This article is an overview of the major players.  This November
    1989 issue of Academic Computing also contains other interesting
    articles on networking.
 Markoff, John, "A Supercomputer in Every Pot," New York Times, p. 1,
 New York, NY, December 29, 1988.
    This article discusses the need for a gigabit national network to
    provide researchers with high speed access to remote resources and
    to develop other useful network applications.

 Networks," Communications of the ACM, vol. 29, no. 10, pp. 932-971,
 Association from Computing Machinery, Inc., New York, NY, October
 1986.
    This is a summary of the state of the world of networks as of late
    1986.  Although influential in its time and still of historical
    interest, it has since been superseded by Quarterman's Book, The
    Matrix, published in October 1989.
 Quarterman, John S., "Etiquette and Ethics," ConneXions - The
 Interoperability Report, vol. 3, no. 4, pp. 12-16, Advanced Computing
 Environments, Mountain View, CA, March 1989.
    Learning how to use a computer system properly takes much longer
    than simply learning the mechanics of making it do things.
    Learning to use a system without offending other users and to
    maximum benefit involves etiquette. Learning to use a system
    without causing harm to others involves ethics.  These are not
    completely separable subjects, and the former tends to blend into
    the latter as the seriousness of the situation increases.  This
    article presents a discussion of these subjects, and some
    suggested guidelines for appropriate behavior.
 Quarterman, John S., "Mail through the Matrix," ConneXions - The
 Interoperability Report, vol. 3, no. 2, pp. 10-15, Advanced Computing
 Environments, Mountain View, CA, February 1989.
    There is a worldwide metanetwork of computer networks that use
    dissimilar protocols at the network or internet layer, but that

User Documents Working Group [Page 7] RFC 1175 FYI - Bibliography August 1990

    communicate at the application layer.  The set of such networks
    that are non-commercial, e.g., academic, research, or military, is
    sometimes called Worldnet.  There are also some commercial
    networks and conferencing systems connected, and the metanetwork
    that includes all of these is what is called the Matrix.  This
    article describes some problems associated with electronic mail
    correspondence through the Matrix.

 distance Networks," IEEE Computer Magazine, vol. 16, no. No. 9, pp.
 15-24, IEEE Computer Society, Los Alamitos, CA 90720, 10662 Los
 Vaqueros, (714) 821-8380, September 1983.
    This article emphasizes how approaches to interconnection, network
    access, network services, and protocol functions are related and
    overlap.  Decisions on which approach to undertake are based on
    user requirements and existing specifications.  Applications to
    TCP/IP and the DDN Internet are provided.

11. REQUEST FOR COMMENTS (RFC)

11.a The Request for Comments Document Series

 The RFCs are working notes of the Internet research and development
 community.  A document in this series may be on essentially any topic
 related to computer communication, and may be anything from a meeting
 report to the specification of a standard.
 Most RFCs are the descriptions of network protocols or services,
 often giving detailed procedures and formats providing the
 information necessary for creating implementations.  Other RFCs
 report on the results of policy studies or summarize the work of
 technical committees or workshops.
 Note: Currently, all standards are published as RFCs, but not all
 RFCs specify standards.
 Anyone can submit a document for publication as an RFC.  Submissions
 must be made via electronic mail to the RFC Editor.  The RFC Editor
 is Jon Postel (Postel@ISI.EDU).
 While RFCs are not refereed publications, they do receive technical
 review from either the task forces, individual technical experts, or
 the RFC Editor, as appropriate.
 RFCs are distributed on-line by being stored as public access files,
 and a short message is sent to the RFC distribution list (RFC-
 REQUEST@NIC.DDN.MIL) indicating the availability of the memo.
 The on-line files are copied by the interested people and printed or
 displayed at their site on their equipment.  An RFC may also be
 returned via email in response to an email query. RFCs can be
 obtained via FTP from NIC.DDN.MIL, with the pathname RFC:RFCnnnn.TXT
 (where "nnnn" refers to the number of the RFC).  Login with FTP,
 username "anonymous", password "guest".
 The DDN Network Information Center (NIC) also provides an automatic
 mail service for those sites which cannot use FTP.  Address the
 request to SERVICE@NIC.DDN.MIL and in the subject field of the
 message indicate the RFC number, as in "Subject: RFC nnnn".
 RFCs can also be contained via FTP from NIS.NSF.NET.  Using FTP,
 login with username "anonymous", and password "guest"; then connect
 to the RFC directory (cd RFC).  The file name is of the form
 RFCnnnn.TXT-1 (where "nnnn" refers to the number of the RFC).
 The NSFNet Network Information Service (NIS) also provides an

User Documents Working Group [Page 31] RFC 1175 FYI - Bibliography August 1990

 automatic mail service for those sites which cannot use FTP.  Address
 the request to NIS-INFO@NIS.NSF.NET and leave the subject field of
 the message blank.  The first line of the text of the message must be
 "SEND RFCnnnn.TXT-1", where "nnnn" is replaced by the RFC number.
 This means that the format of the online files must meet the
 constraints of a wide variety of printing and display equipment.
 Once a document is assigned an RFC number and published, that RFC is
 never revised or re-issued with the same number.  There is never a
 question of having the most recent version of a particular RFC.
 However, a protocol (such as File Transfer Protocol (FTP)) may be
 improved and re-documented many times in several different RFCs.  It
 is important to verify that you have the most recent RFC on a
 particular protocol.
 The Internet Activities Board (IAB) published the "IAB Official
 Protocol Standards" (currently RFC-1140), which describes the state
 of standardization of protocols used in the Internet.  This document
 is issued quarterly.  Current copies may be obtained from the DDN
 Network Information Center or from the Internet Assigned Numbers
 Authority.  Please refer to the latest edition of the "IAB Protocol
 Standards" RFC for current information on the state and status of
 standard Internet protocols.
 The complete set of all RFCs issued is maintained at, and available
 from, the DDN Network Information Center at SRI International.  For
 further information, phone: 1-800-235-3155 (E-mail: NIC@NIC.DDN.MIL).
 Subsets of this master set (shadow copies) are maintained at MERIT
 and CSNET.  Use of the RFC repositories at these sites may be more
 suitable to your network connectivity requirements.  Please note,
 however, that the NIC.DDN.MIL is the central repository and will
 contain the most up-to-date set of RFCs.
