Network Working Group B. Cosell Request for Comments #218 BBN NIC #7548 8 September 1971 Categories: B.1 Updates: none Obsoletes: none
To help us expand our role as NCC, we will be changing the status reporting facility of the IMP. The change will take place within the next month and should be transparent to the hosts.
The text status reports will be removed. They have already been completely superseded by a binary version sent directly to the NCC and are now just excess baggage.
The status reports will remain with the statistics program on fake host 3, but will no longer be affected by any of the PARAMETER CHANGE parameters. This will prevent the Hosts from inadvertently interfering with the operation of the NCC.
