      The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'TCP Congestion Control'
      <draft-ietf-tcpimpl-cong-control-05.txt> as a Proposed Standard.
      This document obsoletes RFC 2001.


      The IESG also approved The NewReno Modification to TCP's Fast Recovery
      Algorithm <draft-ietf-tcpimpl-newreno-02.txt> as an Experimental RFC.


      These documents are the product of the TCP Implementation Working
      Group. The IESG contact persons are Scott Bradner and Vern Paxson.


      Technical Summary

      The TCP Congestion Control document specifies four TCP
      congestion control algorithms: slow start, congestion
      avoidance, fast retransmit and fast recovery. The document
      is an update of RFC 2001. In addition to specifying
      the congestion control algorithms, it specifies what TCP
      connections should do after a relatively long idle period,
      as well as specifying and clarifying some of the issues
      pertaining to TCP ACK generation.

      The NewReno Modification document describes a specific
      algorithm for responding to partial acknowledgments, referred
      to as NewReno. This document is published as an Experimental
      RFC to elicit implementation and testing experience.


      Working Group Summary

      There was significant discussion about early versions of these
      documents but all issues were resolved in the final versions.
