                          NETWORK HOST STATUS

        This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from
   May 8 to May 19.  No testing was done on May 15 due to the attempt
   to install the new IMP system on that day.

        During this interval the PDP-10 of the MIT Artificial
   Intelligence Group (Network address 134) and the PDP-10 at
   Stanford (Network address 11) each became Network Servers.

        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, 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:

            Address              Site                   Computer
            -------              ----                   --------
               7                Rand                    IBM-360/65
              73                Harvard                 PDP-1
              12                Illinois                PDP-11
              19                NBS                     PDP-11
              23                USC                     IBM-360/44

        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.

                                                                [Page 1]
