                          NETWORK HOST STATUS

     This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from
March 13 to March 24.  During this period the SRI-AI computer
became a server.

     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
         -------                ----            --------
           134                  MIT-AI          PDP-10
            13                  Case            PDP-10

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, 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

     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.
