3.1.1 Abstract Data Model

This section describes a conceptual model of possible data organization that an implementation (server side) maintains to participate in this protocol. The described organization is provided to facilitate the explanation of how the protocol behaves. This document does not mandate that implementations adhere to this model as long as their external behavior is consistent with what is described in this document.

The following variables should be maintained by the telnet server for each active telnet session, and the Telnet Server Remote Administration Protocol server should be able to fetch these from the telnet server.

ID: An integer identifier that uniquely identifies a telnet session. Telnet Server Remote Administration Protocol uses the ID to uniquely identify a session.

TimeOfLogon: Stores the time at which the telnet session was established.

IdleTime: Stores the time for which there has been no user activity in the telnet session.
