                   Where and how to get new RFCs
                   =============================

RFCs may be obtained via EMAIL or FTP from many RFC Repositories.  The
Primary Repositories will have the RFC available when it is first
announced, as will many Secondary Repositories.  Some Secondary
Repositories may take a few days to make available the most recent
RFCs.

Primary Repositories:


RFCs can be obtained via FTP from DS.INTERNIC.NET, NIS.NSF.NET,
NISC.JVNC.NET, FTP.ISI.EDU, WUARCHIVE.WUSTL.EDU, SRC.DOC.IC.AC.UK,
FTP.CONCERT.NET, or FTP.SESQUI.NET.

     will be available via an anonymous kermit server soon.  Get the
     file /archive/inet/ls-lR.Z for a listing of these documents.

     Any site in the US running UUCP may call +1 900 GOT SRCS and use
     the login "uucp".  There is no password.  The phone company will
     bill you at $0.50 per minute for the call.  The 900 number only
     works from within the US.
