(Unlike rfc1288.) Um, good point. I guess "finger:bill" being sent from a PC on a SLIP connection doesn't mean much. :-) >There's one thing I'd like clarified--will the final @hostname >part (from which the connect-to host is derived) be stripped >before <blah> is sent to the remote host? Unless I'm misunderstanding section 2.4 of RFC 1288, the finger client shouldn't strip anything. It looks to me that none of the "@hostn" are local to where the client sent the request from, and thus shouldn't be stripped.
