Abstract

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from December 6 to December 18. Due to hardware debugging, the BBN prototype Terminal IMP (Network Address 158) was unavailable for most of the two weeks from November 22 to December 6. There was, therefore, no Host status reports for that period.

Status of Network Hosts

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from

December 6 to December 18. Due to hardware debugging, the BBN

prototype Terminal IMP (Network Address 158) was unavailable for most

of the two weeks from November 22 to December 6. There was, therefore,

no Host status reports for that period.

Several Hosts are currently excluded from the daily testing.

These Hosts fall into two categories:

1) Hosts which are not expected to be functioning on

the Network as servers (available for use from

other sites) on a regular basis for at least two

weeks. Included here are:

Network

Address Site Computer

------- ---- --------

133 BBN PDP-10 (B)

71 Rand PDP-10

13 Case PDP-10

15 Ames/(Paoli) ILLIAC/(B6500)

16 Ames IBM-360/67

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

Included here are the Terminal IMPs, which are

presently in the Network (AMES, MITRE, NBS and BBN*).

This category also includes the Network Control Center

Computer (Network Address 5) which is used solely for

gathering statistics from the Network. Finally,

included among these Hosts are the following:

Network

Address Site Computer

------- ---- --------

7 Rand IBM-360/65

73 Harvard PDP-1

12 Illinois PDP-11

19 NBS PDP-11

The NBS Terminal IMP (Network Address 147) was installed in

Washington at the beginning of December.

The tables on the next two pages summarize the Host status for this

period.

----------------

* The BBN Terminal IMP (Network Address 158) is a prototype and as

such is frequently not connected to the Network, but being used

to refine and debug the Terminal IMP programs.
