                          NETWORK HOST STATUS

   This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from

   May 8 to May 19.  No testing was done on May 15 due to the attempt

   to install the new IMP system on that day.

   During this interval the PDP-10 of the MIT Artificial

   Intelligence Group (Network address 134) and the PDP-10 at

   Stanford (Network address 11) each became Network Servers.

   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.  The only

            Host in this category is the PDP-10 at Case (Network

            address 13).

        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, ETAC, USC, GWC, 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

              23                USC                     IBM-360/44

   The tables on the next two pages summarize the 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.
