Network Working Group J. Postel Request for Comments: 145 UCLA - NMC NIC: 6739 4 May 1971 Updates: 123 Obsoletes: 127

            Initial Connection Protocol Control Commands
   The following is my interpretation of the exchange between NCP's
 which would be necessary to carry out the Initial Connection Protocol
 of RFC #123.  (This note corrects an error pointed out by Eric
 Harslem of RAND).
    Server NCP                      User NCP
