Abstract

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from April 10 to April 21. During this interval the IBM 360/44 at the University of Southern California (Network Address 23) was connected to the Network; also, a Terminal IMP was installed in Omaha, Nebraska at Global Weather Central (Network Address 152) on April 18.

NETWORK HOST STATUS

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from April

10 to April 21. During this interval the IBM 360/44 at the University

of Southern California (Network Address 23) was connected to the

Network; also, a Terminal IMP was installed in Omaha, Nebraska at

Global Weather Central (Network Address 152) on April 18.

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

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, GWC, 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

23 USC IBM-360/44

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.
