This RFC specifies a method for assigning long addresses in the HOST- PORT specification for the data port to be used in establishing a data connection for File Transfer Protocol, FTP (STD 9, RFC 959). This is a general solution, applicable for all "next generation" IP alternatives, and can also be extended to allow FTP operation over transport interfaces other than TCP. This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community. This memo does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.

For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.

For the definition of Stream, see RFC 8729.
