Abstract The ARPANET Protocol Handbook is a collection of documents that describe the protocols of the ARPANET computer network as of April 1976. Protocols are the rules of communication between processes on the network. The protocols in use on the ARPANET form a tree structure. The basic protocol is the IMP-to-Host Protocol. Directly under that is the Host-to-Host Protocol. Spreading out beneath but still closely related are the process level protocols: TELNET, File Transfer, Remote Job Entry, and Graphics. Interspersed along the way are a few small protocols such as the Initial Connection Protocol, and the definition of the standard character set.
