Abstract

A survey was undertaken to determine how many hosts are able to respond to TELNET connections from a user at a class C site. This requires, in addition to IP and TCP, participation in gateway routing via ICMP and handling of class C addresses.

This text was extracted from a ASCII Text document.
This is the abbreviated version, containing approximately 32% of the total text.

Who Talks ICMP, too?

Survey of 18 February 1983

A survey was undertaken to determine how many hosts are able to

respond to TELNET connections from a user at a class C site. This

requires, in addition to IP and TCP, participation in gateway routing

via ICMP and handling of class C addresses.

The list of hosts was taken from RFC843, extracting only those

hosts which are listed there as accepting TELNET connections.

The tests were run on 18-Feb-83 from 3 PM to 6:30 PM EST

from a terminal concentrator located at 192.1.2.22, at BBN.

This net (192.1.2.xxx) is connected to the internet through

a routing gateway, and this terminal concentrator speaks ICMP

including redirection and reporting to the user.

The connection attempts were done manually by typing the

dotted form addresses, so only three passes were made through

the table of hosts. Therefore a few may have been missed due

to being down at these times.

Summary information:

Type # OK out of % OK

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

On net 10 77 121 63.6%

other class A 20 34 58.8%

non-class A 30 32 93.8%

Total 127 187 67.9%
