Pressure from the Chairman

[Categories: A.5;

RFC's obsoleted: none;

RFC's updated: 107]

It is time to set serious schedules for the implementation of NCP's and

Telnets. To facilitate matters, John Heafner of Rand has agreed to

monitor each site's progress and test its implementation.

Network Liaison Contacts are hereby responsible for preparing a schedule

for implementation and informing John. Such a schedule must include

dates of

(a) implementation of an NCP according to the specifications

in Document #1 as modified by RFC #107;

(b) implementation of a user-Telnet which enables local users to

login to foreign Hosts;

(c) implementation of a server-Telnet which enables foreign users to

login on your Host;

(d) documentation of the mechanism for connecting to and logging in

to your Host;

(e) documentation of the mechanism for obtaining job numbers,

passwords, etc. to your Host;

(f) documentation of the services available on your Host; and

(e) regular operation at advertised hours.

John is hereby responsible for prodding Host teams to prodcue the

requisite schedule, software and documentation; for testing out the

advertised implementations; and for probing and understanding the

reasons for unseemly delays. Concomitantly, John is now the right

person to complain to about ambiguities, insufficiencies and

misunderstandings of the protocols.

Thank you for your cooperation.
