A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
directories. This draft is a work item of the Telnet TN3270 Enhancements
Working Group of the IETF.

       Title     : TN3270 Enhancements
       Author(s) : B. Kelly
       Filename  : draft-ietf-tn3270e-enhancements-03.txt
       Pages     : 33
       Date      : 03/23/1994

This document describes a protocol that more fully supports 3270 devices
than do the existing tn3270 practices.  Specifically, it defines a method
of emulating both the terminal and printer members of the 3270 family of
devices via Telnet; it provides for the ability of a Telnet client to
request that it be assigned a specific device-name (also referred to as "LU
name" or "network name"); finally, it adds support for a variety of
functions such as the ATTN key, the SYSREQ key, and SNA response handling.

This protocol would be negotiated and implemented under a new Telnet Option
and would be unrelated to the Telnet 3270 Regime Option as defined in
