NETWORK HOST STATUS

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from December 20

to December 30. (On December 24 and December 31 BBN celebrated

Christmas and New Year's Day respectively.)

During these two weeks the Lincoln Labs TX2 (Network Address 112)

became a server.

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 SITE COMPUTER

ADDRESS

133 BBN PDP-10 (B)

15 Case PDP-10

13 Ames/(Paoli) ILLIAC/(B6500)

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 SITE COMPUTER

ADDRESS

7 Rand IBM-360/65

73 Harvard PDP-1

12 Illinois PDP-11

19 NBS PDP-11

* 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.

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

period.
