, Survey of New-Protocol TELNET Servers
In the nearly five months since the last report several new server sites
have joined the network and there has been some significant progress in
New-Protocol implementation. Perhaps the New-Protocol implementation on
the TIPs scheduled for the end of the year will encourage further
progress in the near future.
There have been numerous changes since the last list (numbers in octal):
SRI-ARC (2) is no longer a server host;
MIT-AI (206), MIT-ML (306), LONDON (52), and OFFICE-1 (53) have added
LLL-RISOS (25), SDAC-44 (32), and ARPA-DMS (34) have joined the network;
SCI-TENEX (55), Rutgers-10 (56), USC-ISIC (364), and SUMEX-AIM (70) have
joined the network with New-Protocol servers.
The following is the latest version* of the summary and tabulation of
server-host TELNET servers.
total server hosts 43 100%
no New-Prot server 16 37%
unknown status (new host) 2 5%
total New-Prot implem. 25 58%
New-Prot on 1 and 27,
Old on socket 1 (2) 13 30%
New-Prot on 1 and 27 (3) 8 19%
New-Prot on 1 only (3) 4 9%
* All data in this report were gathered via a surveying program run at
various times, plus a few manual checks to fill out the list. What
is reported here is the way the various servers work as seen by the
new-Protocol User Telnet at BBNA, as of 10 July 1975.
(2) These are the sites whose operation is 100% correct according to all
protocols and conventions, as I understand them.
(3) We realize that some of the servers that appear here as New-Protocol
servers on socket 1 are actually servers which attempt to
communicate with both Old- and New-Protocol User TELNETs according
to what control sequences are received.
