Abstract

2) Hosts which are currently intended to be users only. Included here are the Terminal IMPs presently in the Network (AMES, MITRE, and BBN[1]). This category also includes the Network Control Center computer (Network Address 5) which is use solely for gathering statistics from the Network. Finally, included among these Hosts are the following:

SITE STATUS

Due to extensive typographic errors in RFC #235, I have

decided to reissue the first of our experimental site status reports.

In compiling RFC #235, I followed the principle that

timeliness was somewhat more important than extremely careful editing;

this seemed to me to be in keeping with the original RFC philosophy. I

am sorry for any embarrassment this may have caused to anyone associated

with the Network, and accept full responsibility for the content of RFC

#235. I will try to do a better job in the future.

SITE STATUS

Beginning with this RFC, BBN will report on the status of

most Network Hosts approximately once every two weeks. The information

for these reports will be gained from talking to people at each site,

and from experimental "data". These data will be the results of daily

attempts to log into each of the Hosts which might be accessible to a

Network user; the attempts will have been made from the BBN prototype

Terminal IMP at a random time each weekday.

Several Hosts are currently excluded from the daily testing.

These Hosts fall into two categories:

1) Hosts which are note expected to be functioning on the

Network as servers (available for use from other sites) for at

least a month. Included here are:

Network Site Computer

Address

71 Rand PDP-10

74 Lincoln TX2

11 Stanford PDP-10

13 Case PDP-10

14 Carnegie PDP-10

15 Paoli B6500

2) Hosts which are currently intended to be users only.

Included here are the Terminal IMPs presently in the Network

(AMES, MITRE, and BBN[1]). This category also includes the

Network Control Center computer (Network Address 5) which is

use solely for gathering statistics from the Network.

Finally, included among these Hosts are the following:

Network Site Computer

Address

7 Rand IBM-360/65

73 Harvard PDP-1

12 Illinois PDP-11

The tables on the next two pages condense the information on

Host status for September 13 through September 24.
