Much has been said about the mechanics of the ARPA Computer Network (ARPANET) and especially about the organization of its communications subnet. Until recently the main effort has gone into the implementation of an ARPANET user-level communications interface. Operating just above the communications subnet in ARPANET HOST Computers, this ARPANET interface is intended to serve as a foundation for the organization of function-oriented communications. See Figures 1 and 2 for our view of a computer… Expand
The terminal IMP for the ARPA computer network
TLDR
A little over three years ago the Advanced Research Projects Agency began implementation of an entirely new venture in computer communications: a network that would allow for the interconnection, via common-carrier circuits, of dissimilar computers at widely separated, ARPA-sponsored research centers. Expand
A Brief History of Computer Networking
TLDR
Computer networking as the authors know it today may be said to have gotten its start with the Arpanet development in the late 1960s and early 1970s, with its reliance on the then novel technique of packet switching to efficiently share communication resources among “bursty” users. Expand
Improvements in the design and performance of the ARPA network
In late 1968 the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense (ARPA) embarked on the implementation of a new type of computer network which would interconnect, via common-carrierExpand
A server host system on the ARPANET
TLDR
This paper describes the design of host software extensions which allow a large-scale machine running a widely-used operating system to provide service to the ARPANET. Expand
A perspective on network operating systems
TLDR
The functions required of a Network operating System are discussed and major differences between the role of the Network Operating System and an individual host operating system are identified. Expand
Network Working Group an Assessment of Arpanet Protocols
This paper presents some theoretical and practical motivations for the redesign of the ARPANET communication protocols. Issues concerning multipacket messages, Host retransmission, duplicateExpand
An integrated approach to network protocols
TLDR
Host-to-host protocols (H-H) for heterogeneous computer networks are still in infancy and among those on which documentation is available are Arpanet and Cyclades, which provide only for basic services allowing the transfer of up to 1000 octet messages. Expand
A resource sharing executive for the ARPANET
The Resource Sharing Executive (RSEXEC) is a distributed, executive-like system that runs on TENEX Host computers in the ARPA computer network. The RSEXEC creates an environment which facilitates theExpand

A tutorial on protocols
TLDR
The concept of a distributed system architecture provides the framework for layers and protocols to operate across heterotgeneous systems and points to the major impact brought about by protocols in system design. Expand

The interface message processor for the ARPA computer network
TLDR
The ARPA Network will initially interconnect many dissimilar computers at ten ARPA-supported research centers with 50-kilobit common-carrier circuits, but the network may be extended to include many other locations and circuits of higher bandwidth. Expand

The Data Reconfiguration Service—an experiment in adaptable, process/process communication
TLDR
The DRS attempts to provide a notation for form definition tailored to some specifically needed instances of data reformatting, and keeps the notation and its underlying implementation within some utility range that is bounded on the lower end by a notation expressive enough to make the experimental service useful, and bounded in the upper end byA notation short of a general-purpose programming language.
