                        Status of Network Hosts

     This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from
December 6 to December 18.  Due to hardware debugging, the BBN
prototype Terminal IMP (Network Address 158) was unavailable for most
of the two weeks from November 22 to December 6. There was, therefore,
no Host status reports for that period.

     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. Included here are:

   Address              Site                Computer
   -------              ----                --------

     133                BBN                 PDP-10 (B)
      71                Rand                PDP-10
      13                Case                PDP-10
      15                Ames/(Paoli)        ILLIAC/(B6500)
      16                Ames                IBM-360/67

   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 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:

                                                                [Page 1]
