NETWORK HOST STATUS
This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from June 5
to June 16. During this period the MIT Math Lab PDP-10 (Network
address 198) became a server.
No testing was done on June 6 due to an attempt to install the
new IMP system. No testing was done on June 9 as the prototype
Terminal IMP was being used for software debugging.
On June 16 the ARPA Terminal IMP (Network 156) was installed in
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, NOAA, RADC, SAAC, BELVOIR, ARPA, 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 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.
