NETWORK HOST STATUS

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from June 5

to June 16. During this period the MIT Math Lab PDP-10 (Network

address 198) became a server.

No testing was done on June 6 due to an attempt to install the

new IMP system. No testing was done on June 9 as the prototype

Terminal IMP was being used for software debugging.

On June 16 the ARPA Terminal IMP (Network 156) was installed in

Arlington, Virginia.

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. The only Host in this category is the PDP-10 at Case

(Network address 13).

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, NOAA, RADC, SAAC, BELVOIR, ARPA, 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:

7 Rand IBM-360/65

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.
