Abstract

In July 1971, CCN published RFC #189 defining NETRJS, a private protocol for remote job entry. NETRJS provides a Network interface to CCN's rje program called RJS (Remote Job Service).(3) As noted in an earlier RFC,(6) "RJS" is the proper name of a software package existing ony at CCN, not a generic term for rje.

UPDATE ON NETRJS

A. INTRODUCTION

In July 1971, CCN published RFC #189 defining NETRJS, a private

protocol for remote job entry. NETRJS provides a Network interface

to CCN's rje program called RJS (Remote Job Service).(3) As noted in

an earlier RFC,(6) "RJS" is the proper name of a software package

existing ony at CCN, not a generic term for rje.

For over two years now, CCN has provided rje service to the Network

using NETRJS. We know of the following distinct implementations of

NETRJS user porgrams:

RAND OS/MVT on 370/158 (originally on 360/65)

UCLA-NMC SEX on Sigma 7

Illinois ANTS on PDP-11

Utah Tenex on PDP-10

MIT-DMCG ITS on PDP-10

Harvard DEC system on PDP-10

UCSB OS/MVT on 360/75

ISI,BBN,NIC,I4 Tenex on PDP-10

We apologize to anyone slighted by omission from this list. Writing

a new user process for NETRJS has proved to be a modest and

straightforward task.

During the month of October, 1973, CCN processed 1373 batch jobs via

NETRJS. The complete statistics are:

1,373 Jobs submitted

1,105 Jobs "printed"

0 Jobs "punched"

NIC 20854, RFC 599: Update on NETRJS

49,400 Cards "read"

822,900 Lines "printed"

18,907 Pages "printed"

393.6 Connect hours

The average job submitted was 360 lines ("cards"), and returned 745

lines on 17.1 pages. These figures are fairly typical.

B. NEW ICP SOCKETS

At the request of the Socket Czar, Jon Postel, (see RFC #433) we

intend to move the NETRJS ICP sockets from 11, 13, and 15 to 71, 73,

and 75, respectively. At present, NETRJS is available from either

socket subspace, so system programmers responsible for maintaining

NETRJS user processes can switch over at their leisure. We plan to

"decommit" sockets 11, 13, and 15 on July 1, 1974.

Those hosts which access NETRJS via socket 1 are unaffected.

C. NEW NETRJS

Last Fall, CCN installed a new implementation of its NETRJS server.

An internal NETRJS rewrite was necessitated by other system changes
