RFC 868, "Time Protocol", May 1983

Source of RFC: Legacy

Errata ID: 2528
Status: Verified
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section No section says:

and -1,297,728,000 corresponds to 00:00 17 Nov 1858 GMT.

It should say:

and -1,297,728,000 (value which would be illegal for this protocol) corresponds to 00:00 17 Nov 1858 GMT.


Although it is not explicit in the RFC, the 32-bits value is unsigned (otherwise, it could not end in 2036, as the RFC says). So, a negative value is not possible.
