SWITCH SETTINGS ON IMPS AND TIPS

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

This note provides a description of the switches on the front panel of

IMPs and TIPs that are important to the correct operation of the

network software. We have had some difficulty in the past when

certain of these switches were set incorrectly, This RFC will be

updated as necessary, to notify site personnel of changes to the

settings.

A. 516 IMPs

--------

The IMP at your site is a model 516 if it has a gray cabinet and two

rows of indicator lights on the front panel. The correct switch

settings are:

1. Sense switches 1,2,3 and 4: OFF (DOWN)

2. PFI/PFH: PFI (UP)

3. HALT INH: OFF (DOWN)

4. W.D.T.: OFF (DOWN)

5. AUTO RSTRT: ON (UP)

6. MEMORY PRTCT: OFF (DOWN)

B. 316 IMPs and TIPs

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

The IMP at your site is a model 316 if it is a TIP or if it is in a

black cabinet and has one row of indicator lights on the front panel.

1. Sense switches 1,2,3,4 OFF (top half depressed)

Site personnel are requested to keep a copy of this RFC near the IMP

and to check the switch settings at their IMP. In addition, the

Honeywell field engineers who perform preventive maintenance have been

requested to use this note as a checklist.
