rfc:rfc233

Network Working Group 28 Sept 71 Abhay Bhushan RFC #233, NIC #7650 Bob Metcalfe

               Standardization of Host Call Letters
               ------------------------------------

We agree with Peggy Karp (See RFC #226) that there would be some benefit in standardizing the symbolic host names used in TELNET programs. It should be recognized that there is a trade-off between brevity and mnemonicism. It is our feeling that a good set of host call letters can be developed using only four characters (see Jim White's in RFC #206.) Each host should suggest its own call letters. Upper and lower case letters should be used interchangeably. The following is our currently recommended list:

     Host Number    Name-4            Name-8
     -----------    ------            ------
           1          sex             sex-ucla
