NETWORK HOST STATUS
This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from February 28 to March 10. The ETAC Terminal IMP (Network address 148) was installed during this period.
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:
Network Address Site Computer ------- ---- -------- 134 MIT-AI PDP-10 13 Case PDP-10 15 Ames/(Paoli) ILLIAC/(B6500)
2) Hosts which are currently intended to be users only. Included here are the Terminal IMP’s which are presently in the Network (AMES, MITRE, NBS and BBN). [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.] 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:
Network 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.
