Abstract

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from March 27 to April 7. During this interval the PDP-10 at Ames which acts as a front-end to the Illiac (Network address 15) became a server. However, this Host will not be available to general use for several months. Also a Terminal IMP was installed at the University of Southern California (Network Address 23) on March 29.

NETWORK HOST STATUS

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from March 27 to

April 7. During this interval the PDP-10 at Ames which acts as a

front-end to the Illiac (Network address 15) became a server.

However, this Host will not be available to general use for several

months. Also a Terminal IMP was installed at the University of

Southern California (Network Address 23) on March 29.

Several Hosts are currently excluded from the daily testing. These

Host 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

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, ETAC, USC, 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.
