Utah RCP-3A protocol for router control is supported in Helm, RouteMaster and RouteMaster VR.
RouteMaster uses the protocol for both outgoing and incoming connections, allowing third-party systems using RCP-3A to control RouteMaster. Helm uses it for outgoing connections to control routers.
Use over TCP/IP
RCP-3A over IP frequently uses TCP port 50001, but is not fixed.
