RFC #267 BBN

NIC #7815 22 November 1971

Categories: F, G.3

Updates: RFC #266

Obsoletes None

This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from November

8 to November 19. On November 18, however, the BBN prototype Terminal

IMP (Network Address 158) was inaccessible due to hardware debugging.

Several Hosts are currently excluded fron the daily testing.

These Hosts fall into two categories:

1) Hosts which are not expected to be functioning on

the Network as servers (available for use from

other sites) for at least two weeks. Included here



Address Site Computer

71 Rand PDP-10

74 Lincoln TX2

13 Case PDP-10

14 Carnegie PDP-10

15 Ames B6500

16 Ames IBM-360/67

2) Hosts which are curently intended to be users only.

Included here are the Terminal IMPs, which are

presently in the Network (AMES, MITRE, and BBN*).

This category also includes the Network Control

Center Computer (Network Address 5) which is used

solely for gathering statistics from the Network.

Finally, included among these Hosts are the following:


Address Site Computer

7 Rand IBM-360/65

73 Harvard PDP-1

12 Illinois PDP-11

During these two weeks the Lincoln Labs TX2 Hosts became a Network

User. The SDC IBM 360/67 is now a server.

The tables on the next two pages summarize the information on Host

status for this period.

* The BBN Terminal IMP (Network Address 158) is a prototype and

as such is frequently not connected to the Network, but being

used to refine and debug the Terminal IMP programs.
