RFC 0214

Network Working Group                              21 August 1971
Request for Comments 214                           E. Harslem-Rand

                            NETWORK CHECKOUT


      As of August 21 we had performed the following verifications
with the sites listed below.  These verifications were done on an
arranged basis and do not indicate any degree of continuous
availability.

      In the category "NCP-107" the heading is somewhat misleading.
It does not indicate a thorough checkout of all the NCP functions
described in Document 1 and RFC 107.  It only indicates that the NCP
in question functioned to the extent required to respond to a RESET (a
necessary condition for the Rand NCP to consider the remote host "up")
and that the NCP performed the functions necessary for an ICP.  Thus,
this column really indicates only a small degree of NCP completeness.
Such function as ECHO, Give Back, error message generation and so on
were not checked.  We have checked some of these functions with UCSB
and SDC but not exhaustively.  This is mainly due to the tedium of
such a process.  BBN is currently writing a protocol certifier for
their DDP-516 host that will do this automatically.

LEGEND:

x--- the function has been verified for the host

21 Auguest 1971
RFC 214 na-- the function is not applicable to the host due to its operating system or intended network use ?--- a comment follows for that function in that host COMMENTS: SRI NIC -- both a server telnet and logger exist; however, they do not process the telnet messages correctly MIT Multics -- we were only able to connect to an interim logger that sent a 'ts' message SDC -- the logger causes the system to crash following login Any discrepancies should be noted via phone call. This RFC will be updated in about one month. [ This RFC was put into machine readable form for entry ] [ into the online RFC archives by Brian Court 6/97 ] [Page 2]
