Network Working Group Edwin W. Meyer, Jr. Request for Comments: 79 MIT Project MAC NIC 5601 November 16, 1970

                       Logger Protocol Error
 A conflict was recently discovered between the official NCP protocol
 as described in protocol document 1 and the logger protocol as
 described in RFC 66 by Steve Crocker.  Steve suggested that we put
 out an RFC to alert the network community to this point.
 In RFC 66, it is proposed that an ALL allocate command be sent
 immediately following an RTS or STR request for connection.  This
 conflicts with the restriction stated in Protocol Document 1 that an
 ALL command can be given only for an "open" connection.
 To not be required to handle an ALL command before a connection is
 established is a simplifying restriction that an NCP implementation
 may take advantage of.  For example, the Multics NCP is currently
 designed this way.  For this reason, and also because we believe that
 the NCP protocol should not be changed now except for critical
 reasons it is felt that the proposed logger protocol should be
 modified to agree with the existing NCP protocol.
