The IETF site is invaluable if you want to see the actual specifications of
the protocol you're documenting. Be aware that your company may not
implement all of the features described and may implement others
idiosyncratically (which is allowed in many of the RFCs).

To see how another company has documented for network administrators the
protocols it implements, see the following site:

http://support.baynetworks.com/library/tpubs/nav/router/soft1320.htm

This is the Nortel Networks/Bay Networks doc site. (I'm partial, 'cause I
wrote some of this stuff, but so did a lot of other people.) You can also
find similar protocol configuration documentation, network planning
information, etc., on the Cisco Systems site: www.cisco.com. Sorry I can't
be more specific, but seek and ye shall find.
