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

3 to January 15.

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:


Address Site Computer

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

133 BBN PDP-10 (B)

8* SDC IBM-370/155

13 Case PDP-10

15 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:


Address Site Computer

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

7 Rand IBM-360/65

73 Harvard PDP-1

12 Illinois PDP-11

19 NBS PDP-11

The tables on the next two pages summarize the Host status for

this period.


*The SDC site is currently replacing their IBM 360/67 by an IBM

370/155. This site therefore is temporarily without any permanent

Host on the network, and for this reason was not included in the daily

testing for the preceding two weeks.

**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.
