Abstract:

This Quarterly Technical Report is the current edition in a series of reports which describe the work being performed at BBN in fulfillment of several ARPA work statements. This QTR covers work on several ARPA-sponsored projects including 1 development and operation of the SATNET satellite network 2 development of the Pluribus Satellite IMP 3 Remote Site Maintenance activities 4 inter-network monitoring 5 development of the Mobile Access Terminal Network 6 TCP for the HP3000 7 TCP-TAC and 8 TCP for the VAX- UNIC. This work is described in this single Quarterly Technical Report with the permission of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The search for a mechanism for loading the UCL gateway, once the ARPANET trunking line via SATNET to the London TIP has been removed from service, has led to renewed interest in a gateway loading access path via SATNET directly. This requires a loaderdumper be written for the gateway which implements XNET4, Internet Protocol, Host- SATNET Protocol, and ARPANET VDH Protocol. Clearly, given the number of functions involved, it is essential that the implementation contain only minimal subsets of all protocols involved.
