Abstract

In the nearly five months since the last report several new server sites have joined the network and there has been some significant progress in New-Protocol implementation. Perhaps the New-Protocol implementation on the TIPs scheduled for the end of the year will encourage further progress in the near future.

July, 1975, Survey of New-Protocol TELNET Servers

In the nearly five months since the last report several new server sites

have joined the network and there has been some significant progress in

New-Protocol implementation. Perhaps the New-Protocol implementation on

the TIPs scheduled for the end of the year will encourage further

progress in the near future.

There have been numerous changes since the last list (numbers in octal):

SRI-ARC (2) is no longer a server host;

MIT-AI (206), MIT-ML (306), LONDON (52), and OFFICE-1 (53) have added

New-Protocol servers;

LLL-RISOS (25), SDAC-44 (32), and ARPA-DMS (34) have joined the network;

SCI-TENEX (55), Rutgers-10 (56), USC-ISIC (364), and SUMEX-AIM (70) have

joined the network with New-Protocol servers.

The following is the latest version* of the summary and tabulation of

server-host TELNET servers.

total server hosts 43 100%

no New-Prot server 16 37%

unknown status (new host) 2 5%

total New-Prot implem. 25 58%

New-Prot on 1 and 27,

Old on socket 1 (2) 13 30%

New-Prot on 1 and 27 (3) 8 19%

New-Prot on 1 only (3) 4 9%

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 list. What

is reported here is the way the various servers work as seen by the

new-Protocol User Telnet at BBNA, as of 10 July 1975.

(2) These are the sites whose operation is 100% correct according to all

protocols 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.
