SEPTEMBER, 1974, SURVEY OF NEW-PROTOCOL TELNET SERVERS

LAST MONTH'S SURVEY PRODUCED A GRATIFYING AMOUNT OF FEEDBACK CLARIFYING

THE STATUS OF SEVERAL SITES; HOWEVER THERE HAVE BEEN VERY FEW CHANGES IN

THE STATUS OF HOST SERVERS. THE CHANGES IN THIS MONTH'S LIST, IN

NUMERICAL ORDER (HOST NUMBER THROUGHOUT ARE OCTAL):

UCLA-NMC IS NO LONGER A SERVER;

HOST 205 IS NOW BBN-TENEXD, A NEW SYSTEM (BBNB) IS NOW HOST 61;

RAND-RCC WAS ACCIDENTALLY OMITTED FROM THE PREVIOUS LIST;

SDC-LAB HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY ELIMINATED FROM THE LIST UNTIL IT RETURNS

TO THE NET;

I4-TENEXA (117) IS NOT A SERVER--KI4B-TENEX (217) IS, AND HAS BEEN ADDED

TO THE LIST;

AMES-67 FIXED A BUG, REVEALING TO THE WORLD THE NEW-PROTOCOL SERVER (NO

OPTIONS) THAT WAS THERE ALL ALONG;

ISI-DEVTENEX (226) AND USC-ECL (327) HAVE BEEN ADDED.

WHAT FOLLOWS IS AN UPDATE OF THE SUMMARY AND TABULATION THAT APPEARED

LAST MONTH.* THERE IS STILL A LONG WAY TO GO TO 100% NEW-PROTOCOL

IMPLEMENTATION.

TOTAL SERVER HOSTS 34 100%

NO NEW-PROT SERVER 21 62%

TOTAL NEW-PROT IMPLEM. 13 38%

NEW-PROT ON SOCKET 27,

OLD ON SOCKET 1 (2) 6 18%

NEW-PROT ON 1 AND 27 (3) 6 18%

NEW-PROT ON 1 ONLY 1 3%

NOTES:

* ALL DATA IN THIS REPORT WERE GATHERED VIA A SURVEYING PROGRAM RUN AT

VARIOUS TIMES, PLUS A FEW MANUAL CHECKS TO FILL OUT THE DATA. WHAT

IS REPORTED HERE IS THE WAY THE VARIOUS SERVERS WORK AS SEEN BY THE

NEW-PROTOCOL USER TELNET AT BBNA, AS OF 23 SEPT. 1974.

(2) THESE ARE THE SITES WHOSE OPERATION IS 100% CORRECT ACCORDING TO ALL

PROTOCOL AND CONVENTIONS, AS I UNDERSTAND THEM.

(3) WE REALIZE THAT SOME OF THE SERVERS THAT APPEAR HERE AS NEW-PROTOCOL

SERVERS ON SOCKET 1 ARE ACTUALLY SERVERS WHICH ATTEMPT TO

COMMUNICATE WITH BOTH OLD- AND NEW-PROTOCOL USER TELNETS ACCORDING

TO WHAT CONTROL SEQUENCES ARE RECEIVED.
