Hi Yall,

 Here at work I stumbled on the need to emulate a terminal server (say 
like an Equinox ELS Terminal Sefver) to access RS232 ports over an TCP/IP 
network. The obvious solution was to use the Telnet protocol. In doing 
this, I found the need for 3 new options, at this time, I'm using unused 
TELOPT equates, but I'm sure that this will bite me sooner or later as 
Yall come up w/ new options. 

 What I would like to know is, How do I propose these new options to Yall 
to take them into consideration to be added to the standard? 


					Thanks,
