			Assigned Network Numbers

This note specifies the numbers assigned to identify networks for use in
the inter-network protocol experiments.  Additional Numbers are assigned
by Jon Postel [POSTEL@ISIC or (415) 326-6200 x3718].

Internetwork Header Format

  For convenience the current Internetwork protocol header and TCP
  headers are reproduced here:

  Octet Bit     Use			 (Width)

    --- Beginning of protocol-independent information ---

    0		Destination net		 (8)
    1-3		Destination host	 (24)
    4		Source net		 (8)
    5-7		Source host		 (24)
    8-9		Data length in octets	 (16)
    10		Header length in octets	 (8)
    11	 0-3	Format			 (4)
      This field selects the appropriate gateway processing and is used
      to dispatch the packet to the appropriate protocol module in the  
      destination.  The following values are defined for this field:
	0 -- Escape; protocol is specified by a subsequent field
	1 -- TCP
	2 -- Secure TCP
	3-16 -- Not allocated
	17 -- Cross internet debugging

   --- End of protocol-independent information
