Incompatible machines represent an old problem in the computer field. Very often, because of computer incompatibility, programs developed at one installation are not available to users of other installations. The same program may therefore have to be rewritten dozens of times.

Two Early Interactive Computer Network Experiments
TLDR
Two early networking experiments joined a time-sharing computer at the System Development Corporation with systems at the Stanford Research Institute briefly in 1963 and at MIT Lincoln Laboratory in 1966-1967 and included experiments with the interactive use of remote programs. Expand

Computer network development to achieve resource sharing
TLDR
An overview of the need for a computer network, the requirements of a computer communication system, a description of the properties of the communication system chosen, and the potential uses of such a network are described. Expand
The datacomputer: a network data utility
The Datacomputer is a large-scale data management and storage utility for use by a network of computers. The system is designed to provide facilities for data sharing among dissimilar machines, rapidExpand
Multiple computer networks and intercomputer communication
TLDR
Three other more important reasons for computer networks exist, at least with respect to scientific computer applications, are defined. 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
Data Reconfiguration Service Compiler: Communications Among Heterogeneous Computer Centers Using Remote Resource Sharing.
TLDR
The report provides an overview of the language in which data- reconfiguration definitions are expressed and describes the use, implementation, and maintenance procedures for the Data Reconfiguration Service (DRS) Compiler which is coded in PL/1. Expand
