Windows XPprovides support for the optional TCP/IPprotocol services listed in the following table. Protocol Description RFC Character Generator (CHARGEN) Sends data made up of the set of 95 printable ASCII characters. Useful as a debugging tool for testing or troubleshooting line printers. 864 Daytime Returns messages containing the day of the week, month, day, year, current time (in hh:mm:ss format), and time-zone information. Some programs can use the output from this service for debugging or monitoring variations in system clock time or on a different host. 867 Discard Discards all messages received on this port without response or acknowledgment. Can serve as a null port for receiving and routing TCP/IPtest messages during network setup and configuration or, in some cases, can be used by programs as a message discard function. 863 Echo Echoes back data from any messages it receives on this server port. Can be useful as a network debugging and monitoring tool. 862 Quote of the Day (QUOTE) Returns a quotation as one or more lines of text in a message. Quotations are taken at random from the following file: systemroot\System32\Drivers\Etc\Quotes. A sample quote file is installed with the Simple TCP/IP Services. If this file is missing, the quote service fails. 865
