Sorry, but I don't know. This is the first time in my 30+ years in IT that
I've ever heard of the term "protocol monkey". It is certainly not something
in the mainstream, although it /might/ be an up-and-coming technology for
all I know.

It probably means that you've been had. RFC2975 is "Introduction to
Accounting Management" (see ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc2975.txt),
not "Infinite Monkey Protocol Suite".
Otoh, RFC2795 is "Infinite Monkey Protocol Suite", written by S. Christey of
MonkeySeeDoo Inc, on April 1, 2000 (see
ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc2795.txt). The date and author
indicates that you have been the unwitting butt of a late April Fools joke.
