Network Working Group E. Westheimer Request for Comments: 288 BBN NIC: 8274 January 6, 1972 Obsoletes: None Updates: 287


This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from December 20 to December 30. (On December 24 and December 31 BBN celebrated Christmas and New Year’s Day respectively.)

During these two weeks the Lincoln Labs TX2 (Network Address 112) became a server.

Several Hosts are currently excluded from 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) on a regular basis for at least two weeks. Included here are:


133 BBN PDP-10 (B) 15 Case PDP-10 13 Ames/(Paoli) ILLIAC/(B6500)

2) Hosts which are currently intended to be users only. Included here are the Terminal IMPs, which are presently in the Network (AMES, MITRE, NBS 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:


7 Rand IBM-360/65 73 Harvard PDP-1 12 Illinois PDP-11 19 NBS PDP-11

* 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.

The tables on the next two pages summarize the Host status for this period.
