RFC 1180, "TCP/IP tutorial", January 1991

Section 5.4 says:

The portion of the address that is used for network number and for
host number is defined by the upper bits in the 4-byte address.  All
example IP addresses in this tutorial are of type class C, meaning
that the upper 3 bits indicate that 21 bits are the network number
and 8 bits are the host number.  This allows 2,097,152 class C
networks up to 254 hosts on each network.

It should say:

The portions of the address that are used as network number and as
host number are defined by the netmask. All example IP addresses in
this tutorial are of type class C and have a netmask of 255.255.255.0,
meaning that the first three bytes (24 bits) represent the network
number and the last eight bits the host number. This allows 16,777,216
class C networks with up to 254 hosts on each network.

Notes:

The concept of IP address loses much of its meaning if the value of the
netmask is ignored. The paragraph as originally written doesn't make
sense, in particular "the upper 3 bits indicate that 21 bits are the network
number".

Section 2.4 says:

It is seen from this structure that for computers with more than one
physical network interface, the IP module is both a n-to-m multiplexer 
and an m-to-n de-multiplexer.

Section 5.4 says:

The IP address space is administered by the NIC (Network Information
Center).  All internets that are connected to the single world-wide
Internet must use network numbers assigned by the NIC.  If you are
setting up your own internet and you are not intending to connect it
to the Internet, you should still obtain your network numbers from
the NIC.

It should say:

The IP address space is administered by the IANA (Internet Assigned 
Numbers Authority).  All internets that are connected to the single 
world-wide Internet must use network numbers assigned by the IANA.  
If you are setting up your own internet and you are not intending to 
connect it to the Internet (private network), you can choose any 
IP address for your network but it is recommended to use private 
ranges which are:
class A   10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255 (16,777,216 IP addresses),
class B   172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 (1,048,576 IP addresses) and
class C   192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 (65,536 IP addresses).

Notes:


--VERIFIER NOTES--
The current text in RFC 1180 accurately reflects the administration of IP address at the time.

driver, with network applications, or with another module.

interface hardware.  A module is a software that communicates with a
