Abstract

   This document enumerates several common IANA allocations for use by
   Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) protocols.  The following well-known
   numbers are required: a UDP port number, an IP protocol number, and a
   link-local multicast group address.

1.  Introduction

   This document enumerates several common IANA allocations for use by
   one or more protocols that conform to [RFC5444].  The following
   well-known numbers are required: a UDP port number, an IP protocol
   number, and a link-local multicast group address.  All interoperable
   protocols running on these well-known IANA allocations MUST conform
   to [RFC5444].  [RFC5444] provides a common format that enables one or
   more protocols to share the IANA allocations defined in this document
   unambiguously.

2.  Conventions Used in This Document

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

3.  UDP Port Number

   MANET routers require a well-known UDP port number [IANA] to send and
   receive MANET routing protocol packets.  The title of this UDP port
   is "manet".  The value of this UDP port is 269.

4.  IP Protocol Number

   MANET routers require a well-known IP protocol number [IANA] to send
   and receive MANET routing protocol packets.  The title of this IP
   protocol number is "manet".  The value of this IP protocol number is
   138.
