IMPSYS Change Notification

We will shortly install (or perhaps will have already

installed) a new version of the IMP system, Version 2513. The

new version incorporates two principal changes:

1. A Host will be prevented from sending any messages

into the Network for between 40 seconds and a

minute and a quarter after he comes alive (this

has been changed from between 30 seconds and a

minute).

2. The IMP has been given the ability to test its Host

interfaces under control of the NCC. This will help

us isolate the trouble when the IMP Host communication

path is faulty.
