NETWORK HOST STATUS

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from February 14

to February 25. On February 21 Massachusetts celebrated Washington's

Birthday. During these two weeks the MIT Artificial Intelligence

(MIT-AI) PDP-10, Network address 134, became a Network User.

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

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

134 MIT-AI PDP-10

13 Case PDP-10

15 Ames/(Paoli) ILLIAC/(B6500)

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

here are the Terminal IMP's 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 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.
