This document reproduces the Host/Host Protocol developed by the ARPA
Network Working Group during 1969, 1970, and 1971.  It describes a
protocol used to manage communication between processes residing on
independent Hosts.  It addresses issues of multiplexing multiple
streams of communication (including addressing, flow control, connection
establishment/disestablishment, and other signaling) over a single hardware
interface.  It was the official protocol of the ARPA Network from January
1972 until the switch to TCP/IP in January 1983.  It is offered as an RFC 
at this late date to help complete the historical record available through 
the RFC series.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for the historical record.
