898     Hinden       Apr 84      Gateway Special Interest Group Meeting
                                 Notes

   This memo is a report on the Gateway Special Interest Group Meeting
   that was held at ISI on 28 and 29 February 1984.  Robert Hinden of
   BBNCC chaired, and Jon Postel of ISI hosted the meeting.
   Approximately 35 gateway designers and implementors attended.  These
   notes are based on the recollections of Jon Postel and Mike Muuss.
   Under each topic area are Jon Postel's brief notes, and additional
   details from Mike Muuss.  This memo is a report on a meeting.  No
   conclusions, decisions, or policy statements are documented in this
   note.

897     Postel       Feb 84      Domain Name System Implementation
                                 Schedule

   This memo is a policy statement on the implementation of the Domain
   Style Naming System in the Internet.  This memo is a partial update
   of RFC 881.  The intent of this memo is to detail the schedule for
   the implementation for the Domain Style Naming System.  The names of
   hosts will be changed to domain style names.  Hosts will begin to use
   domain style names on 14-Mar-84, and the use of old style names will
   be completely phased out before 2-May-84.  This applies to both the
   ARPA research hosts and the DDN operational hosts.  This is an
   official policy statement of the ICCB and the DARPA.

896     Nagle        Jan 84      Congestion Control in IP/TCP
                                 Internetworks

   This memo discusses some aspects of congestion control in IP/TCP
   Internetworks.  It is intended to stimulate thought and further
   discussion of this topic.  While some specific suggestions are made
   for improved congestion control implementation, this memo does not
   specify any standards.

895     Postel       Apr 84      A Standard for the Transmission of
                                 IP Datagrams over Experimental Ethernet
                                 Networks

   This RFC specifies a standard method of encapsulating Internet
   Protocol (IP) datagrams on an Experimental Ethernet.  This RFC
   specifies a standard protocol for the ARPA Internet community.

894     Hornig       Apr 84      A Standard for the Transmission of
                                 IP Datagrams over Ethernet Networks

   This RFC specifies a standard method of encapsulating Internet
   Protocol (IP) datagrams on an Ethernet.  This RFC specifies a
   standard protocol for the ARPA-Internet community.

893     Leffler      Apr 84      Trailer Encapsulations

   This RFC discusses the motivation for use of "trailer encapsulations"
   on local-area networks and describes the implementation of such an
   encapsulation on various media.  This document is for information
   only.  This is NOT an official protocol for the ARPA Internet
   community.

892     ISO          Dec 83      ISO Transport Protocol Specification

   This is a draft version of the transport protocol being standardized
   by the ISO.  This version also appeared in the ACM SIGCOMM Computer
   Communication Review (V.12, N.3-4) July-October 1982.  This version
   is now out of date.

891     Mills        Dec 83      DCN Local-Network Protocols

   This RFC provides a description of the DCN protocols for maintaining
   connectivity, routing, and clock information in a local network.
   These procedures may be of interest to the designers and implementers
   of other local networks.

                                 Implementation Schedule

   This memo is a policy statement on the implementation of the Exterior
   Gateway Protocol in the Internet.  This is an official policy
   statement of ICCB and DARPA.  After 1-Aug-84 there shall be no dumb
   gateways in the Internet. Every gateway must be a member of some
   autonomous system.  Some gateway of each autonomous system must
   exchange routing information with some gateway of the core autonomous
