Appendix D: DNS and Relevant RFCs

The following RFCs describe the DNS or are relevant to it.

Note: The main repository for RFCs is maintained by the IETF, text versions (the normative reference, but PDF and HTML versions are also available) may be viewed at or (where XXXX is the 4 digit RFC number - left padded with zeros as necessary). Currently published RFCs are pointed to which contains various information and links to the text (normative) reference and PDF and HTML (non-normative) version. The RFC may also be viewed at which also contains various RFC status information including errata together with a list of alternative formats, such as, text, PDF and HTML (this is the working area version of the document). Finally, there is now a searchable RFC list.

<ingrained habit> The RFC links below yield a plain text (nrmative) version which was copied to our site when the RFC was issued. We started this service a long time ago when the world was young, RFCs were maintained in some strange places, occasionally moved location, and performance and reliability of the repositories was very variable (being generous). None of these conditions apply today, far from it. The RFC repository is a robust, fast service. Nevertheless, we persist in our ingrained habits for no particularly good reason (old tricks..). If you want/prefer/need more choice you are advised to use one of the links identified above, if, however, you just want to read the darned RFC, feel free to click the links below.</ingrained habit>
