Introduction




The growth of National Science Foundation Network (NSFNET)
in the last few years has brought the benefits of network-
ing to researchers at hundreds of academic, government and
industrial sites. Network users have improved access to
research tools, and there are greater possibilities for col-
laboration among members of the research community. But in
order to take maximum advantage of more widespread and
improved connectivity, users have to be aware of the
resources that are available to them.

When the NSF Network Service Center (NNSC) began to publish
the "Internet Resource Guide" in 1989, our goal was to
increase the visibility of the resources that are accessible
via NSFNET and other parts of the Internet. We have depended
on the population of resource providers on the Internet to
furnish us with the information for the guide.

We have just finished an extensive update of many of the
entries to the Internet Resource Guide. We hope that this
new November 1992 edition of the printed version of the
guide will inspire its readers, many of whom surely maintain
resources we haven't yet mentioned, to submit descriptions
of their resources for the guide.

If you wish to submit a new entry to the Internet Resource
Guide, send a message to "[email protected]", and
we will send you a template and instructions for preparing
your entry.



How to Use and Maintain This Guide...



Using the Guide...

The Internet Resource Guide is intended to help Internet
users learn what services on the network are available to
them.

Each service is listed in a separate section, which



November 10, 1992 NNSC Introduction Page 1








describes the resource, explains who can use the resource,
how the network is reached via the Internet and lists con-
tacts for more information.

To assist users trying to find a particular type of
resource, similar resources are grouped into chapters. For
example, Chapter 1 lists all the special computing resources
on the Internet, including supercomputer centers and centers
for parallel computing. Thus, users interested in finding a
supercomputer to work on can browse through the sections in
Chapter 1, in search of a supercomputer center that can
accomodate their needs. Users interested in locating a par-
ticular service can check the tables of contents at the
start of each chapter.

The resource guide is indexed in WAIS (the Wide Area Infor-
mation Server system), which can be accessed on
quake.think.com, nnsc.nsf.net, and many other Internet host
computers. Telnet to the host computer, and login as "wais".


Maintaining the Guide...

The resource guide is designed to be kept in a loose-leaf
notebook, to make it easy to add or replace sections of
text. Users can add new sections to their collection, or
replace the existing sections, with updated entries. The
guide is also designed to be stored on a host computer, with
each section in a separate file.

The guide is distributed electronically by the NNSC. To get
on one or more of the distribution lists for the guide, send
a note to "[email protected]".

o+ The "text" list receives a Text (ASCII) copy of each
new or updated entry in an email message.

o+ The "PostScript" list receives a Postscript copy of
each new o updated entry in an email message.

o+ The "ftp" list receives announcements of new or
updated entries that are available for anonymous ftp
on nnsc.nsf.net.

Please specify which list or lists you prefer. (The text in
both the Text and PostScript versions is the same; the
Postscript version is generally easier to read, but it can-
not be read on-line or searched by computer, unless you have

a computer uses PostScript for its screen display.)

_D_e_s_c_r_i_p_t_i_o_n

The Cornell Theory Center at Cornell University is one of
four National Advanced Scientific Computing Centers sup-
ported by the National Science Foundation. The Theory
Center's resources have been used by more than 5,000
researchers in fields as diverse as aerospace engineering,
economics, and epidemiology. Its staff offers technical
expertise in software, visualization, vectorization, and
parallel processing to its users, and investigates new,
highly parallel processing resources for the scientific com-
munity in order to increase the usability of these computers
through systems development and through examination of tech-
niques to improve performance. A variety of education and
training programs are also offered to high school, undergra-
duate, and graduate students, and their professors.

The Theory Center, through its Cornell National Supercom-
puter Facility (CNSF), provides a world-class supercomputing
environment that includes traditional vector-scalar super-
computing resources, in addition to scalable, parallel sys-
tems. Theory Center resources were recently upgraded to
include a single six-way IBM ES/9000-900 supercomputer (with
2.66 Gflops peak aggregate performance, 9 Gbytes shared
memory). An important feature for many users who now access
1 Gbyte of virtual memory is that each user process may
access up to 2 Gbytes of virtual memory on the ES/9000.
Parallel resources at the Theory Center include a 32-
processor KSR1, the 32-processor Parallel Visualization
Server (PVS) and a Scalable Cluster of RISC Systems. The
_________________________

KSR1 is a scalable parallel system manufactured by Kendall
Square Research and offers 1.28 Gflops peak aggregate per-
formance, and a 1 Gbyte shared memory and 1000 Gbyte address
space per processor.

The Theory Center is a national center of expertise for
IBM's PVS and the visual programming interface Data Explorer
(DX). The PVS is a parallel computer that implements DX
across 32 processors using a large global memory, and per-
forming up to 2.5 Gflops. This processing speed combined
with the portable, user-friendly DX software allows an enor-
mous range of performance levels with no change in function
for the user. The same DX is available, for example, on
the Center's Scalable Cluster of RISC Systems (SCRS), which
consists of multiple RS/6000 workstations connected via high
speed networking.

This RISC Cluster is being used for multiprocessing and
parallel computing. The cluster presently consists of eight
model 550s, each with at least 128Mb of memory and all run-
ning AFS (Andrew File System). PVM is available to affect a
message- passing parallelism. For those with X-capable dev-
ices, the Center has a PVM workbench to facilitate use of
the cluster. Express will also be available in the near
future.

In addition to the production operating environments, full
support for communications across the NSFNET is provided via
TCP/IP. Interprocess communications, including remote
logins, FTP file transfer, and X Window System, are sup-
ported. FORTRAN is the primary language, and is supported
in scalar, vector, and parallel modes, with interactive
debug and execution analysis. Scientific subroutine
libraries are available, including vectorized and parallel-
ized versions. Online HELP facilities, UNIX man pages, and
a Cornell set of TUTOR examples assist users. Graphics
software supports both local hardware and remote facilities.
Several well-known application packages and a list of
software are available upon request.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

The Theory Center's resources can be reached via the Inter-
net (supporting remote login, file transfer, electronic
mail, and graphics). Users can access the CNSF via direct
dialups: 607-255-4141 provides 300, 1200, and 2400 baud
service; 607-254-5454 provides 9600 baud service.

All proposals for time on the Theory Center's resources are
subject to peer review through the Theory Center's National
Allocations Committee; researchers must submit an applica-
tion for supercomputer time directly to the Theory Center.
Corporations interested in using the Theory Center through
the Center's Corporate Research Institute may contact Linda
Callahan at the address and phone number above.

The mission of the North Carolina Supercomputing Center
(NCSC) is to promote the growth of computational science,
education, and research in North Carolina institutions and
to foster the economic development of North Carolina through
high-performance computing and its applications. The pri-
mary focus of NCSC is to promote economic growth, computa-
tional science and education in North Carolina through
cooperative agreements with industry and research collabora-
tions with academic institutions at all levels. NCSC is a
division of MCNC, a non-profit company. NCSC offers high-
performance computing on the following platforms:


Cray YMP8/464 128 MWords SSD 62 GBytes of disk storage
Convex C220 128 MBytes of memory 10 GBytes of disk storage


An IBM 3090-180J provides mass storage services for the
Center using Unitree. The Center's computers are connected
via a high-speed UltraNet network.

The NCSC visualization lab includes a Silicon Graphics
4D/280 GTX with stereo display, UltraNet network interface,
eight processors, 128 megabytes of memory and three giga-
bytes of disk storage; a Silicon Graphics 320 VGX-Turbo with

32 megabytes of memory and 8 gigabytes of disk storage; a
Sun 4/490 with 64 megabytes of memory and 7.3 gigabytes of
disk storage; a DECStation 5000/200 PXG-Turbo with 96 mega-
bytes of memory and 850 megabytes of disk storage; and a
Stardent Titan 3040 P3 G3 with four processors, 64 megabytes
of memory and 2 gigabytes of disk storage. The lab also
includes a NeXT computer with color monitor, a Macintosh
IIci with color monitor, a Kodak XL7700 color printer, an
optical scanner, a film recorder, two commercial-grade com-
ponent video recorders, a video digitizer, a scan converter
and a digital frame store, and a multi-format video tran-
scoder.

NCSC was chosen as the site of the International AVS Center
in 1991. Two of the International AVS Center's goals are to
broaden the user base and the functionality of Application
Visualization System, the current "de facto" standard visu-
alization environment, and to be vender-neutral. The Inter-
national AVS Center plans to reach this goal by fostering
discipline-specific AVS module development and developing
new uses for AVS. The International AVS Center collects,
ports and distributes user-contributed public domain AVS
modules and serves as a liason between AVS users and ven-
dors. The International AVS center manages an International
AVS Users Group to work with users from around the world to
form local user groups.

NCSC provides user support through e-mail and telephone con-
tacts; it also provides training courses on a wide variety
of supercomputing topics. NCSC has a complete training
facility with lecture facilities, video taping capability,
and a hands-on training laboratory populated with 16 works-
tations. NCSC is a partner in the VISTAnet project, a com-
ponent of the NREN project sponsored by the National Science
Foundation. NCSC is installing a HIPPI based internal net-
work for high-speed visualization and mass storage services.
The Research Institute within NCSC pro- motes interdisci-
plinary and computational approaches to challenging problems
through collaboration with industrial and academic partners.

Chapter 2: Library Catalogs


A large number of libraries allow access to their library
catalogs via the Internet. Such catalogs can be very useful
for finding uncommon books not available at a local library.
Once a book is located, it can often be borrowed by your
local library through Interlibrary Loan. Another popular
use of library catalogs is to check citations or references.
Many catalogs also support more extended reference facili-
ties.

Please note that on-line catalogs often have a limited
number of ports. Users are asked not to abuse their access.

We would like to acknowledge the considerable assistance of
Ron Larsen, Art St. George, and Joe St. Sauver in compiling
this section.

_D_e_s_c_r_i_p_t_i_o_n

RLIN is the information management and retrieval system of
The Research Libraries Group, Inc. It includes an online
bibliographic database cataloging the holdings of well over
one hundred research libraries, archives, and special
collections-a total of over forty million records in August
1990. Entries are divided among eight files: books, seri-
als, archival materials (e.g., personal papers, governmental
records), maps, music scores, sound recordings, visual
materials (e.g., films and photographs), and computer files.
Smaller subject-oriented databases contain citations for
articles in art and architectural periodicals; eighteenth-
century English-language publications; art sales catalogs
dating from the 1500s to the present; and research in the
humanities scheduled for publication within the next two
years.

Users search RLIN with command-line searches rather than
from a menu, by specifying index terms. Indexes available
include title, subject, author, conference or corporation,
ISBN, LC number, and many more; some are specific to the
file being searched (such as the index to music publishers'
unique numbers on sound recordings and scores). Search
results can be further restricted by language, date of pub-
lication, publisher, terms found in notes fields, etc.

LUIS, the Library User Information Service, can be used to
find bibliographic information, locations, and call numbers
for materials held by the libraries of the University of
Illinois at Chicago (UIC). LUIS includes more than 860,000
titles. Older items in the UIC libraries may not be
included in LUIS.

LUIS contains records for all books cataloged since 1976 for
the Library of the Health Sciences (LHS), and since 1977 for
the other UIC libraries. Many older books in the east
campus libraries are also included: all English-language
books published since 1968, and virtually all books in the
Architecture and Art, Math, and Science Libraries are in
LUIS.

LUIS also contains LHS audiovisuals cataloged since 1978 and
selected government documents at LHS. Records and holdings
for all periodicals currently received by LHS, and for most
periodicals currently received by the other libraries, are
in LUIS. Most titles not yet cataloged (including those on
order) are also included.

BUBL is the BUlletin Board for Libraries on JANET, the Joint
Academic NETwork in the U.K. BUBL collects information of
interest to network- using librarians and their users. A
major aim is to provide librarians with information on ser-
vices and resources on JANET and other networks (e.g., the
European IXI network and the world-wide Internet). However,
BUBL also covers items of general interest to librarians.
Moreover, it is increasingly used by non-librarians - lec-
turers, students, and others - for the guidance it provides
on finding and using networked resources and services. Most
BUBL users are from the U.K. However, there are known users
in several other countries, including Sweden, the Nether-
lands, Canada, Hong Kong, and the U.S.A.

BUBL is run by the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow
on behalf of JUGL, the JANET User Group for Libraries. It is
partially supported by the Information Systems Committee of
the Universities Funding Council and by private sponsorship,
but is run on a mainly voluntary basis by the two universi-
ties. The user interface is provided by a software package
called 'USERBUL'(copyright Leicester University and NISS).
This allows information to be accessed through a series of
menus and sub-menus. However, since the hierarchical

dance with the copyright notice appearing at the front

September 20, 1992 NNSC Section 2.26, Page 1








structure is apparent rather than real, users need not
"climb" or "descend" 'through menus in order to reach the
files or menus they desire. It also allows users to search
large files by keyword, to transfer information to their
host machine via electronic mail using the POST command, to
send a message to the editor, or to display various kinds of
online help. Versions of this software are also used by the
humanities bulletin board HUMBUL and by the NISS (National
Information on Software and Services) bulletin board.

Sections of particular interest are:

B electronic reference works of various kinds, includ-
ing manuals, guides, descriptions of networked ser-
vices, bibliographies of networking

C recent LIS publications with abstracts(courtesy of
Book Data and others)

D national and international e-text directories cover-
ing opacs, information services, electronic mail
addresses, scholarly discussion lists, and resources
in general

E the most recent contents pages of over 70 LIS jour-
nals.

H users information, including information from LIS
organisations, news, items for sale, results of sur-
veys

S electronic journals and texts, including sources of
electronic text, a directory of electronic journals
and newsletters, some electronic journals in the LIS
field, and related items

V library systems and software items, including exam-
ples of Operational Requirements for library comput-
ing systems

Z Special user education team run by the Loughborough
LIS Computers In Teaching team

Information on the bulletin board is updated on a daily
basis, and update bulletins are sent out once or twice
weekly to the 680 plus members of the LIS-link electronic
mail discussion list on JANET.




September 20, 1992 NNSC Section 2.26, Page 2








The British Library Research and Development Division has
recently funded a six-month study into the future of BUBL.
The study aims to investigate how BUBL's role and, conse-
quently, its coverage and facilities should be developed in
the next few years, and to produce a coherent, co-ordinated
and costed short to medium term development plan as a guide
to future efforts.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

To access BUBL from the internet:

publications which facilitate resource access.

_M_i_s_c_e_l_l_a_n_e_o_u_s

Regular bulletins describing additions and updates to the
service are sent to the members of the LIS-link email dis-
cussion list. Note, however, that there is a restriction on
non-UK membership of this list. UK residents may join the

The Texas Woman's University Library has revived its
newsletter DATA ENTRIES and is making it available in elec-
tronic form through free subscription over the Internet.

DATA ENTRIES will cover events at the Mary Evelyn Blagg-Huey
Library in Denton, Texas, as well as developments in public
services and the Woman's Collection.

Perhaps it's not surprising that Texas Woman's University in
Denton, Texas, has a "woman's" collection in the library,
but the fact that this collection is among the finest in the
nation. Begun in 1932, the Woman's Collection contains more
than 42,000 books and periodicals, 2500 feet of manuscript
and archival records, and approximately 20,000 photographs.

Historical manuscripts include the personal papers of Her-
mine Tobolowsky, the "Mother of the Texas Equal Legal Rights
Amendment," Sarah Weddington (Roe v. Wade), and authors
Claire Myers Owens, LaVerne Harrel Clark, and Edith Deen.
In addition, the library has collected the records of signi-
ficant women's organizations such as the Texas Federation of
Women's Clubs, The Texas Federation of Business and Profes-
sional Women, the American Association of University Women
(Texas), and the Texas state archives of Delta Kappa Gamma.
In addition, to add to its growing collection on women in
the military, TWU acquired the records of the WASP, Inc.,
the veterans organization for the Women's Airforce Service
Pilots who flew during World War II.

SABIO is a Spanish word meaning Wise One or Learned One, and
is the name of the University of Arizona Library's Informa-
tion System.

SABIO went public in December 1992 and is being implemented
in stages. When completed in June 1993, SABIO will offer
approimately 2 million bibliographic records from the fol-
lowing UA Libraries: Main Library, Science-Engineering
Library, Music Library, and Center for Creative Photography
Library. The collections to the Architecture Library and
College of Law Library will be loaded during the summer/fall
of 1993. At the time this entry was written, there were 1.5
million records in SABIO. SABIO has online information
screens that users are asked to consult to the most recent
information. Select I > Library Information off the main
menu.

SABIO, which uses Innovative Interfaces, Inc., software,
runs on two DEC VAX 5900. It features a highly functional
Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) which provides: search
capabilities by keyword, author, title, subject, call
numbers and government documents numbers; up-to-the-moment
circulation status; order information for books not yet
received; journal holdings information; course reserve

MARC and Pro-Cite formats; an Internet gateway to remote
library OPACs and databases; locally mounted commercial
databases (available to the University Community only);
local databases; Spanish languages menus; Chinese, Japanese
and Korean characters displayed via specially equipped
microcomputers; and access to the CARL UnCover service.

Beginning in the fall 1993, the Library will be loading the
Marchive database to government publications, and biblio-
graphic records to its dissertations.

Buckyballs, a local database that was mounted on SABIO in
December 1992, may be of interest to many readers. It is a
unique bibliography on buckminsterfullerenes (AKA: Carbon
60), that is maintained by members of the U of A Physics
Department. Buckyballs can be accessed from SABIO's main
menu option, O> Other Libraries and Databases. It is
searchable by SABIO's main search engine and is presently
updated monthly. The Buckyballs file is available via
anonymous ftp. Consult the Buckyballs Information screen on
SABIO for the ftp information as well as a general descrip-
tion of the Buckyballs database.

Chapter 3: Data Archives


The Internet is home to a wide variety of data archives. In
this section we try to list the more important and the more
uncommon archives. In particular, we do not list archives
of mailing lists, other than those that do software distri-
butions. Such archives can be located by asking the main-
tainers of the mail lists.

The Gene-Server is a mail response facility that will return
a specific GenBank (tm) entry requested via e-mail.

Other Services:

The server now distributes Protein Information Resource
(PIR, also known as NBRF) protein sequence database entries.
The VMS and ASCII versions of PIR are available for
anonymous FTP as well as via Gopher.

Molecular biology software for Apple Macintosh, DOS, Unix
and VAX-VMS computers is also available from the server.

A number of information files (the R. Roberts Restriction
Enzyme database; sequence analysis reference, and such) are
distributed.

The Matrix of Biological Knowledge Archive-Server files are
now available only from this address.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

The server can be accessed via e-mail on the Internet, BIT-
NET, and UUCP networks. The addresses to use are:

bchs.uh.edu!genbank-server (Usenet)
gene-server%[email protected] (BITNET)

Please be aware that a mail response program is not "smart"
and can only respond to a limited set of commands. GenBank
entries are available by name and accession number only.

Your request can consist of one of the following:

HELP
SEND HELP
SEND GB-LOCUS genbanklocusname
SEND INDEX indexname
SEND ACCESSION accession_number
SEND ACCESSION accessionumber(s)
SEND KEYWORD genbankkeyword
SEND PIR-KEYWORD pirkeyword
SEND PIR-ACCESSION piraccessionnumber(s)

There are many other parameters for specific subsets of the
Gene-Server, please see the individual HELP files.

"HELP" will result in a small help file being sent back;
everyone should request the help message. The file will
contain up-to-date information about the server, access,
release numbers, and policies. The help message also
includes all index names, so "SEND INDEX" no longer works.
"SEND INDEX index_name" (where "index_name" is one of the
index files listed in the HELP message) will work. "SEND
LOCUS genbank_locus_name" will return via e-mail the
requested locus if it exists, and an error message if it
does not. Use the index file in the HELP message to find
the name of the entry, or use the accession number.

Note that large GenBank entries (Lambda, EBV, tobacco and
liverwort chloroplasts) may not make it through the thread
of mailers. UUCP mailers, in particular, silently enforce a
limit of 64,000 characters in a single mail message. Note
also that Usenet mail is very unreliable; you should con-
sult the "pathalias" database to construct a mail path from
your machine to bchs.uh.edu. A local Unix mail wizard may
be able to help.

The Gene-Server itself silently enforces a limit of one
megabyte on a reply. Please do not ask for a lot of software
or data in a single message.

IMPORTANT NOTE: "[email protected]" is an MX record.
If you have problems reaching that address, ask your local
system mail expert how to handle addresses that are "MX
records." As a "very" last resort, send email to one of the
addresses given above.

Anyone can use the catalog.

_M_i_s_c_e_l_l_a_n_e_o_u_s

The current version of GenBank on the server is Release 64.
The server is updated as often as possible given funding
(none) and disk space constraints. The server may be
updated daily in the future.

Information and software is exchanged regularly with the
European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) File Server,
and the molbio ftp sites, "ftp.bchs.uh.edu" and
"nic.funet.fi"; but the specific files, syntax, and informa-
tion vary between the four servers.

The server contains a simple response to someone asking for
too many loci or otherwise abusing the service: it stops
working for them.

Questions can be sent to [email protected] (Internet) or
[email protected](BITNET). Requests to talk to a human rather
than a mail response program should be sent to archive-
[email protected] By popular demand, archive-
[email protected] also works.

This service is provided by the Institute for Molecular
Biology, the Department of Biochemical and Biophysical Sci-
ences, and is funded by the National Science Foundation.

The server is not funded or related in any with the DHHS,
PHS, National Institutes of Health, or its contractors or
subcontractors on the GenBank contract. GenBank is a trade-
mark of the US Department of Health and Human Services, US
Public Health Service.

The LiMB (LIsting of Molecular Biology databases) database
is a computer-based collection of information on molecular
biology and related databases. LiMB is intended to facili-
tate locating and accessing these databases as well as to
provide an ``overview'' that will help in developing a sys-
tematic, coordinated approach to designing, developing and
maintaining these databases.

Each entry in LiMB currently consists of 57 fields, includ-
ing: database staff names and addresses; database mainte-
nance hardware and software; scope of coverage and database
goals; details about submission and access to the data sets;
database size; and types of data covered by the database.
LiMB entries are based on questionnaires filled out by the
database managers or, in the absence of a completed ques-
tionnaire, on secondary sources (e.g., a journal article).
LiMB is currently maintained in a relational DBMS.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

LiMB is not available through direct network access. It can
be sent via electronic mail.

The Medieval and Early Modern Data Bank is a resource pro-
ject established at Rutgers University and co-sponsored by
The Resource Libraries Group, Inc. Its aim is to provide
scholars with a continually expanding reference library of
information concerning the medieval and early modern
periods, circa A.D. 800-1800. Because MEMDB is a
computer-based, electronic reference tool, it offers remark-
able facilities for immediate information retrieval and
manipulation.

In 1993 MEMDB will become available in CD-ROM, available at
a modest charge and with regular updates through Rutgers or
RLG. Its master data set will be vastly expanded. MEMDB's
scope will extend to virtually any scholarly compilation of
data that can be presented in a tabular form. New material
to be incorporated will include information on such subjects
as wages and prices, household size, mortality, property-
holdings, charity, and nutrition, drawn from such sources
as:

o+ taxation records

o+ wills and inventories

o+ parish records and vital statistics

o+ company records

o+ import/export records

o+ household/estate accounts

the astronomical object. It is nearly complete to 1950 for
stars and to 1983 for non-stellar objects. It excludes solar
system objects. It contains information from all major
astronomical journals and catalogs and is also useful in
providing a complete cross-reference of identifications for
an object or for searches of known objects around a coordi-
nate position. SAO is the official NASA agent in the U.S.

returned by the Dynamics Explorer satellites 1 & 2. It pro-
vides interactive tools for displaying this data in various
ways and selected subsets may be acquired via anonymous FTP.
This data is primarily used by those doing research in space
physics, magnetospheric physics, and the dynamics of the
upper atmosphere. The measurements are classified as fol-
lows: DC magnetic field; AC electric field; particles; elec-
tron and ion ionospheric temperature and density; ion compo-
sition and drift; thermal neutral drift, composition, den-
sity, and temperature.

cation area, name, a description, the environment under
which it operates, the person to contact for more informa-
tion and the approximate cost for academic user. The pro-
grams themselves are not available through the data base.
The data base is referred to as ``supersft'' for ``supercom-
puting software.''

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _a_c_c_e_s_s

This data base is accessible to other universities through
BITNET and the Internet. A LISTSERV virtual machine named
SUPERSFT has been established at UIC for easy retrieval of
the information.

_D_e_s_c_r_i_p_t_i_o_n

The NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) is an ongoing
project to organize a broad range of published extragalactic
data into a computer-based central archive designed for fast
and flexible query via electronic networks.

The June 1992 version of NED provides positions, names, and
basic data for more than 200,000 extragalactic objects, as
well as related bibliographic references and notes from
catalogs and other publications. It forwards to the user,
upon request, files containing the data retrieved during a
session. It also allows users to view the contents of some
major catalogs and to browse the abstracts of recent arti-
cles of extragalactic interest from several major journals
(including A&A, AJ, ApJ, IAU Circulars, MNRAS, PASP, their
Letters and Supplements). The current release also intro-
duces the capability of searches filtered by object types
(e.g. find galaxies only, or exclude infrared sources), and
provides the first phase of detailed data collection from
catalogs and the literature.

NED is an object-oriented database, meaning that all infor-
mation is organized around a master list of astronomical
objects (such as galaxies, groups of galaxies, quasars and
radio sources) obtained from detailed cross-identifications
among some thirty major catalogs. Additional catalogs are
being folded in continually. Objects can be selected by

_D_e_s_c_r_i_p_t_i_o_n

Unidata is a national program to help universities acquire
weather data and to analyze and display those data for
teaching and research. The program is funded by the National
Science Foundation and managed by the University Corporation
for Atmospheric Research. Unidata negotiates a group con-
tract with a commercial data-broadcasting firm so that
universities may receive weather data at a discount. Uni-
data develops and distributes software for capturing,
analyzing, and displaying those data locally. Unidata also
advocates on behalf of universities on data issues in
Federal and other arenas.

Unidata-developed software includes the Unidata Local Data
Manager (LDM), which captures real-time weather data from a
satellite broadcast, and netCDF, a network-transparent,
self-describing form for storing scientific data. The LDM
is being enhanced to allow users to capture and forward data
over the Internet.

Unidata distributes applications software developed and
licensed by universities. These are Purdue University's
Weather Processor (WXP) and the University of Wisconsin's
McIDAS-OS2 and McIDAS-X software. WXP and McIDAS-X are
UNIX-based applications; McIDAS-OS2 runs on PS/2 computers
with the OS/2 operating system. Unidata also distributes and
supports the UNIX version of NASA's GEMPAK (for General

Unidata provides bug fixes, upgrades, and software distribu-
tions over the Internet. Software support includes forming
and maintaining special-interest mailing lists, offering
advice on hardware acquisitions, and holding semiannual
training workshops in the use of Unidata-supported software.
Consultation with users is conducted via email. The program
also publishes a quarterly newsletter.

Archie is a central database for information about archive
sites. It speeds the task of finding a specific program on
the net. Archie keeps track of UNIX sites; VMS sites may be
added in the near future.

Archie is a pair of software tools: the first maintains a
list of several hundred Internet ftp archive sites, each of
which is updated about once a month. The second tool allows
outsiders to log onto the host to query the database.
Archie also maintains a Software Description Database of the
names and descriptions of various software packages, docu-
ments, and datasets that are kept on anonymous ftp archive
sites around the Internet. The "whatis" command allows you
to search this database.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

To access archie, "telnet" or "rlogin" to
"quiche.cs.mcgill.ca" (132.206.2.3) as user "archie". The
"help" command gives you information about various topics,
including the commands available and how to use them. The
"raw" listings of ftp sites are stored in compressed form in
the directory "ftp/archie/listings". Manual pages for
archie are available in the directory "ftp/archie/doc". The
file "archie.man.roff" contains a UNIX-style manual entry in
*roff format; "archie.man.txt" contains the same information
preformatted for people on non-UNIX systems.

Users can ask archie to search for specific name strings.
For example, "prog kcl" would find all occurences of the
_________________________

dance with the copyright notice appearing at the front
of this guide.




April 10, 1991 NNSC Section 3.25, Page 1








string "kcl" and tell you which hosts have entries with this
string, the size of the program, its last modification date,
where it can be found on the host, and some other useful
information. This example would find archive sites that are
storing Kyoto Common Lisp. Complete anonymous ftp listings
of sites in the database can be obtained via the "site" com-
mand; for a list of sites, see the "list" command.

There is an electronic mail interface to archie. To receive
the latest information on this interface, send mail to
"[email protected]" with the word "help" in the subject
line or body.

If you can't access the manual files via interactive ftp or
the mail-based servers, send a message to "archie-
[email protected]" asking to receive a copy of the manual
by mail.

_W_h_o _C_a_n _U_s_e _t_h_e _A_r_c_h_i_v_e

Archie is available to all Internet users.

_M_i_s_c_e_l_l_a_n_e_o_u_s _I_n_f_o_r_m_a_t_i_o_n

Send comments, bug reports, etc. to: "archie-
[email protected]". If you know of an anonymous ftp site that
archie doesn't seem to maintain, or if you have additions or
corrections to the Software Description Database, send mail
to: "[email protected]".

"Satellite" archie servers are being set up in Finland and
the Netherlands in order to lessen the load on the tran-
satlantic Internet link.

The maintainers of archie strongly encourage maintainers of
anonymous ftp archives to do two things:


o+ Send additions and corrections to the Software Distri-
bution Database to "[email protected]".


o+ Maintain compressed, automated, recursive listings
(ls-1R.Z files) on their machines. This lessens net-
work loads and makes life easier for archie. Send
queries for specific formats to "archie-
[email protected]".

The LIDO MAILSERVER for AI literature at the University of
Saarbruecken, Germany allows for the retrieval of biblio-
graphic information on AI-related publications via elec-
tronic mail. The references are returned in LaTeX (Bibtex)
format or in a refer-like format. As of 1991, more than
twenty thousand documents are contained in its database,
with an annual increase of twenty-five percent. About four
thousand bibliographic requests are currently handled each
year.

Queries to the bibliographic database may refer to the
author name(s), the title, and the year of publication.
Substring search and regular expressions (egrep) are possi-
ble. Global keywords or classification hierarchies cannot
be accessed. Users who already have a certain overview of a
field will thus probably profit more from the LIDO MAIL-
SERVER than novices familiarizing themselves with a new
area.

The EMBL Data Library offers a range of electronic services
to the molecular biology research community.

An electronic mail server and an anonymous ftp server allow
access to a large number of important data collections,
including the EMBL nucleotide sequence database, the SWISS-
PROT protein sequence database, and the Brookhaven protein
structure database. In addition to the complete quartely
releases of the sequence databases weekly updates of the
EMBL database are provided for downloading by ftp. Indivi-
dual EMBL database entries can be retrieved using the e-mail
server, and new entries are made available on a daily basis.

The Data Library also maintains an archive of free software
for molecular biology. More than 200 different programs are
currently available for MS-DOS, Vax/VMS, UNIX and Macintosh
systems and can be downloaded by e-mail or anonymous ftp.

New data collections and software are added constantly.

The FASTA and QuickSearch services enable remote users to
perform sequence similarity searches against a variety of
nucleotide and protein sequence databases maintained at
EMBL. Whereas QuickSearch is appropriate for the quick iden-
tification of very similar database entries, FASTA is better

Chapter 4: White Pages


The Internet supports several databases that contain basic
information about users, such as e-mail addresses, telephone
numbers, and postal addresses. These databases can be
searched to get information about particular individuals.
Because they serve a function akin to the telephone book,
these databases are often referred to as "white pages."

The Knowbot Information Service is a white pages ``meta-
service'' that provides a uniform interface to heterogeneous
white pages services in the Internet. Using the Knowbot
Information Service, one can form a single query that can
search for white pages information from the NIC WHOIS ser-
vice, the RIPE European white pages service and MCI Mail,
among others, and have the responses displayed in a single,
uniform format.

Inclusion of additional information about an organization
with which a person is affiliated enables access to addi-
tional white pages services including the NYSERNet X.500
White Pages Pilot project, and over 200 finger and whois
services run by individual organizations. For example, a
query about will return results from the
NYSERNet White Pages project and from the finger server on

JvNCnet is a North East Research Regional Network with
direct access to the NSFNET backbone. JvNCnet also has
international connections to several Scandinavian countries
(Norway, Finland, Iceland, Sweden, and Denmark) via the
network's connection to NORDUnet, and to France and Switzer-
land via the link to INRIA.

The regional network, the first T-1 (1.544 Mbps) academic
network, evolved from the thirteen members of the Consortium
for Scientific Computing to a regional network, currently
with thirty-one sites concentrated in the Northeast. When
the John von Neumann National Supercomputer Center closed in
April 1990, JvNCnet moved its headquarters to, and became
part of, Princeton University.

JvNCnet is engineered as a backbone network where backbone
nodes are connected to each other with multiple T1 lines.
These backbone nodes fan out to connect JvNCnet members at
T1, fractional T1 (128 kbps), 56 kbps, 19.2 kbps, and 9.6
kbps over dedicated and dial-up lines. Backbone nodes are
located at phone company premises in the cities of Princeton
(NJ), Trenton (NJ), Philadelphia (PA), Boston (MA), Provi-
dence (RI), New Haven (CT), New York (NY), and Newark (NJ).
Member institutions connect to the closest backbone node,

DARPA, or NASA, NSF, or DOE, etc. It may be used for any
educational or research purpose.

The member organizations are universities and research
laboratories. The Information Sciences Institute (ISI) of
the University of Southern California (USC) acts as the
agent for Los Nettos.

Nine organizations are already participating in this network
(ISI, USC, JPL, CalTech, UCLA, TIS, Rand, TRW, and NOSC). A
number of other research centers have expressed strong
interest in participating.

Los Nettos will interoperate with CERFnet and other networks
to provide access to special resources (for example, the San

Sesquinet is a regional network in Texas. It was organized
in 1986 specifically to fill the regional network role
within the NSFnet scheme. It has been operational since May
1987.

Sesquinet is primarily an IP network, and connects directly
to the NSFnet backbone via an NSS at Rice University.

In cooperation with THEnet we also carry intra-state DECnet
Phase IV that can be passed to SPAN/HEPnet.

Our original and slowest lines are 56kb/s, and these remain
the normative circuit technology for access from individual
sites. We are deploying T1 circuits in two ways:

o+ In cooperation with THEnet, we are building an inter-
city redundant high-speed backbone. Initially, this
will be a T1 triangle connecting Houston (Rice Univer-
sity), Austin (the University of Texas at Austin), and
Dallas (the University of Texas at Dallas).

o+ In addition, some individual sites are connected to
this intercity backbone via T1 circuits. The Baylor
College of Medicine is the first to do so.

The NASA Science Network (NSN) is an IP network which sup-
ports scientists and flight projects funded by NASA's Office
of Space Science and Applications (OSSA). The network is
used to provide remote access to such resources as scien-
tific databases and supercomputing centers. The NSN main-
tains hubs at several NASA centers which are interconnected
in a partial mesh topology. These backbone sites use terres-
trial circuits ranging in speed from 168 to 672 Kbps. From
these hubs radiate numerous tail circuits; the majority of
these tails are 56 Kbps, with a few at 9.6 Kbps as well.

The NSN was designed to provide NASA's scientific communi-
ties with a more general networking approach that would pro-
vide full networking services in a vendor-independent
environment. These services include file transfer and remote
logon as well as email.


NSN is a NASA-wide network managed by the NASA Science
Internet Project Office (NSIPO) at Ames Research Center. It
is used for NASA-funded space science research programs and
flight projects.

Users include NASA sites, and government facilities,
research, and academic sites conducting NASA-funded
research.

NORDUnet is a collaboration between the national research
networks in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
Its purpose is to provide the national research and educa-
tion communities with an efficient networking service which
ensures coherence of the national R & D networks and con-
nects these to similar networks in the rest of Europe and
the world.

NORDUnet is organized as a consortium agreement between the
national networks DENet, FUNET, SUNET, SURIS and UNINETT.
The administration is an integral part of UNI-C in Denmark.

NORDUnet has contracted its work mainly to the national
organizations. The network operations center has been con-
tracted to KTH/SUNET. It is their responsibility to monitor
the service, configure the Cisco routers (IP) as well as
coordinate operational issues. The X.25 operations have
been contracted to UNINETT and DECNET operations to UNI-C.
Overall technical coordination has been contracted to
VTKK/FUNET.

NORDUnet has five points of presence, one in each of the
Nordic countries.

NORDUnet provides IP, DECNET, X.25 and CLNS layer 3 ser-
vices, in this order of volume. NORDUnet leases bandwidth in
form raw lines and adds value by providing the network layer
protocols in a coordinated fashion with equipment operated
through various contracts. The national networks which are
the NORDUnet customers see it as a "NORDUnet plug" which
provides different service "pins".

NJE traffic is transported over TCP/IP. The CLNS (including
DECNET Phase V) pilot traffic is carried by the same Cisco's
as the production traffic. The external connections are
mainly based on Cisco routers. NORDUnet runs IP and CLNS
protocols to the US and IP, CLNS and DECNET IV to Europe.
X.25 connectivity to Europe is provided via a direct connec-
tion to the IXI network.

There are app. 60.000 IP hosts, 5000 DECnet hosts, and 100
EARN hosts in the Nordic national networks that are inter-
connected by NORDUnet. NORDUnet connects the national
Nordic networks to Internet, Ebone, EASInet, EARN/BITNET,
EUnet, HEPnet, SPAN and IXI.

The Terrestrial Wideband Network was built and deployed by
BBN STC as a part of the initial phase of the Defense
Research Internet (DRI). In May 1989, this network replaced
the Satellite Wideband Network, which had been in operation
for the previous 8 years. The Satellite Wideband was a
domestic 3 Mbit/sec network that had been used for research
into the use of packet satellite technology to efficiently
support applications with varying delay, throughput, and
reliability requirements, e.g., interconnection of distri-
buted operating system clusters, development of end-to-end
bulk transfer protocols, multimedia conferencing, intercon-
nection real-time interactive simulation/training systems.
The Terrestrial Wideband continues this tradition by using
one of the cross-country T1 trunks from the DARPA National
Networking Testbed (NNT) to support research in high speed
networking, to provide connectivity among academic and
government sites, and to support a testbed for Internet pro-
tocol development and experimentation with applications.
Currently this network is carrying cross-country Internet
datagram traffic associated with DARPA-funded projects. It
also supports a research environment for multimedia con-
ferencing and voice/video conferencing using gateways which
use a real-time connection oriented protocol over a connec-
tionless network.

Access to the Terrestrial Wideband is typically via an IP or
ST gateway. Connection of such a host is at the discretion
of DARPA. The current network includes the following Wide-
band Packet Switches (WPS) and user sites -- BBN (BBN), NY
(RADC), Washington (DARPA, NRL), Chicago (NCSA), LA (ISI),
SRI (SRI, Stanford). This fall, Ft Monmouth will be con-
nected to the NY WPS and CMU will be connected to a WPS to
be installed in Pittsburgh.

The Terrestrial Wideband Network is to be used for DARPA-
funded research and development activities of the Internet
community. Users typically access the network via gateways
which have Internet connectivity to the Terrestrial Wideband
Network. Applications which might benefit most from the
Terrestrial Wideband Network are those which require high
bandwidth and/or low delay between geographically distant
sites, such as bulk file transfer, remote procedure calls,
conferencing, graphic simulations, and distributed operating
systems.

a) System and Network Architecture
The Terrestrial Wideband is currently a trans-
continental network built on T1 trunks belonging to the
National Networking Testbed (NNT). The Wideband packet
switch nodes (WPSs) are located at unattended NNT
Points of Presence (POPs). They are based on Butterfly
multiprocessor hardware and are connected via the T1
fiberoptic trunks into a backbone configuration. The
WPSs pass network traffic using the Dual Bus Protocol
reservation scheme. Local area networks at user sites,
e.g., ethernets, are connected to the backbone packet
switches via Internet IP and ST gateways and T1 tail
circuits.

The current topology of the network, which resulted
from external constraints, is a series of packet
switches connected in a line by T1 trunks. This can
result in partitioning of the network in the event of a
packet switch failure. To minimize outages, the Ter-
restrial Wideband Network includes a number of
features. The multiprocessor hardware configuration
used for the packet switch provides redundancy in case



September 27, 1989 NNSC Section 5.21, Page 2








a processor node fails. Also, a failsafe box isolates
the WPS upon detection of an outage while continuing to
maintain connectivity between the T1 trunks in and out
of the failed WPS, thus maintaining network continuity.
The network also allows remote dial-in access for a
number of emergency functions that would otherwise have
to be performed by on-site staff.

b) Operations
A remote monitoring center provides network control
capabilities, and a dialup capability provides backup
monitoring and control when necessary. The Terrestrial
Wideband Network packet switch software can be updated
via remote downloading. Network operations support is
provided between 8AM and 8PM Eastern time.

c) Protocols

- TCP/IP traffic is supported by the Terrestrial Wide-
band Network. This is accomplished by using standard
Internet gateways.

- Stream Protocol (ST) protocol (based on IEN 119) is
used between gateways which support voice/video
traffic. This is a connection-oriented protocol which
operates over the connectionless Terrestrial Wideband
Network, and allows the gateways to send packets to
other destinations with minimal delay, as is required
for voice/video conferencing.

- Gateways communicate with the Terrestrial Wideband
Network packet switches (WPSs) via the Host Access
Protocol (HAP), specified in RFC 907-A. This is a pro-
tocol by which a host can send datagrams across the
network, and can request and manage network bandwidth.

- The WPS software provides an echo host which
responds to ICMP ping packets.

- Dual Bus Protocol provides a link-level transport
protocol which uses a reservation mechanism to provide
access fairness for each WPS. This is a type of Dis-
tributed Queue Dual Bus (DQDB) protocol similar to the
IEEE 802.6 Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) protocol,
but with features that support wide area networking and
multimedia conferencing. Whereas conventional packet
store and forwarding would involve per packet forward-
ing processing and buffering at every intermediate



September 27, 1989 NNSC Section 5.21, Page 3








node, a DQDB protocol performs processing and buffering
only at the entry point and minimizes the processing
and buffering at subsequent nodes along the trunk until
the exit point.

- Wideband Monitoring Protocol (IP protocol number 78)
is used between the WPSs and the monitoring center.

providing transit service and a testbed for joint NATO C3
and interoperability experiments. These links have replaced
the old SATNET (Atlantic Packet Satellite Network) service.
Point-to-point trans-Atlantic service between the US and the
UK and between the US and Italy connects the ARPANET with
local networks at the Royal Signals and Radar Establishment
(RSRE) and the University College London (UCL), both in the
UK, and at the Italian National Research Council (CNUCE) in
Italy. The Norwegian Telecommunications Administration
Research Establishment (NTARE) accesses the network via
RSRE. Connections to the SHAPE Technical Centre (STC) in
the Netherlands and the Warrior Preparation Center (WPC) in
West Germany will be added within the next few months.

The US-to-Europe links are provided via full duplex 64kbps
connections between a Butterfly Gateway located at BBN in
Cambridge, and the Butterfly Gateway at RSRE, and between
the Butterfly Gateway at DARPA in Arlington, Va., and the
Butterfly Gateway at CNUCE.

CONCERT (COmmunications for North Carolina Education,
Research, and Technology) is a private telecommunications
network owned and operated by the Center for Communications
at MCNC to interconnect universities, research institutions,
graduate centers, non-profit organizations, government
laboratories, and industries in North Carolina, permitting
timely participation in research and education projects.
The CONCERT Network Operations Center is located at MCNC in
Research Triangle Park.

CONCERT is actually two networks; one for video, one for
data. Both are carried over CONCERT's private microwave
facilities that span 453 path miles from Asheville in the
west to Greenville in the east.

CONCERT OBJECTIVES

o+ Provide and operate an advanced communications network
for research and education.

o+ Build a collaborative university and industry program.

o+ Serve as a test bed for next-generation services and
systems.

o+ Participate in the deployment of National Research and
Education Network (NREN) for North Carolina.

o+ Develop high-performance capabilities in visualiza-
tion, supercomputing, and distributed systems.


VIDEO NETWORK

CONCERT utilizes two duplex analog NTSC video channels that
function as a multi-way, interactive videoconferencing net-
work to encourage research, education, and technology
transfer. An additional duplex video channel connects the
state's four medical schools. The interactive video chan-
nels provide face-to-face communications capabilities among
all institutions. Each institution has videoconference and
video teleclass facilities.

Specific programs and applications include:

o+ videoconferencing capabilities for researchers and
faculty;

o+ graduate and extension courses in a variety of discip-
lines;

o+ seminars in supercomputing and high-performance compu-
tation;

o+ research collaborations among members of the research
community;

o+ scientific and technical seminars and workshops; and

o+ medical courses and programs.

Sixty percent of the available video network time is booked
for courses and regularly scheduled seminars, with the
remaining time reserved for meetings and conferences. This
open time provides researchers and faculty the opportunity
to meet as required with little prior notice.

DATA NETWORK

The CONCERT data network functions as a mid-level TCP/IP
network providing access to the INTERNET, a collection of
data networks across the nation and world interconnecting
universities, government agencies, national laboratories,



September 1, 1992 NNSC Section 5.23, Page 2








non-profit research organizations, and industry. Through
CONCERT, North Carolina researchers from academia, govern-
ment, and industry have access to these resources as well as
electronic mail and USENET news for communications, learn-
ing, and collaboration with colleagues.

The CONCERT network is built from an interconnected collec-
tion of IP routers spanning the state. T3 links are util-
ized for the Triangle campuses; T1 circuits for institutions
outside the Triangle area. More than 10,000 computers and
workstations are interconnected across North Carolina.

CONCERT-CONNECT

CONCERT-CONNECT, a program of the MCNC Center for Communica-
tions, provides North Carolina businesses and industry an
opportunity to gain access to state and national research
and education resources through the INTERNET. CONCERT-
CONNECT can provide a company a significant competitive edge
in research and development.

Businesses and industry interested in connecting to CONCERT
can use the network for collaboration, research, and educa-
tion. Network connection provides users with access to
email, bulletin boards, various databases, and other network
and institutional resources. Connection to CONCERT can be
achieved by direct network connection at 56 Kbps or T1
speeds, or by three dial-up modem services: Serial Line
Internet Protocol (SLIP); individual UNIX accounts; UUCP
Mail/News.

COMMUNICATIONS RESEARCH

The primary purpose of the research activities is to lever-
age the evolution of CONCERT to support advanced educational
uses of the network and communications research in North
Carolina. The existing network and established userbase is
utilized as a testbed, and the focus of the research is
joint activities among MCNC, the universities, and industry.
Projects tend to emphasize use of standard network technolo-
gies, supercomputing communications applications, and
methods to use networking to enable collaboration by provid-
ing virtual proximity capabilities.

Currently Funded Projects:

o+ Atila-development of a prototype network analysis-
evaluation-management system for Asynchronous Transfer



September 1, 1992 NNSC Section 5.23, Page 3








Mode networks.

o+ VISTAnet-a testbed that provides a 2.488-Gbps wide
area network connecting the CRAY Y-MP, the Pixel
Planes graphic processor, and SGI 340 VGX. Research
programs center on meeting the challenges of gigabit
networking: efficient communications, distributed com-
puting, and applications. (Partners: BellSouth, GTE,
UNC-Chapel Hill, NCSU, CNRI.)

o+ Shared X-Windows/Workstation Collaboratory-a joint
program with NCSC and UNC-Chapel Hill emphasizing
remote interactive graphics on high-end workstations
located in CONCERT video- conference rooms. Advanced
visualization applications and shared computing
environments are featured.

o+ Traffic Characterization-a study to measure and
mathematically characterize the traffic statistics
(packet length and interarrival times) of CONCERT.

o+ Packet Video-seeks to make evolutionary changes to
TCP/IP protocols to support interactive video traffic.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

SWITCH is a foundation, sponsored by the government and the
Swiss universities, providing teleinformatics services to
all Swiss universities and to various research institutes by
connecting to national and international resources. SWITCH
started operation in October 1988.

SWITCHlan is a national backbone network which connects all
universities using leased lines with speeds between
128 kbit/s and 2 Mbit/s. Most other organizations are
connected via 64 kbit/sec. For routing on these national
leased lines SWITCH uses CISCO routers. The protocols
supported are DECnet, TCP/IP, X.25 and ISO CLNS.

All three Swiss supercomputers are connected to SWITCHlan.
Access to some library catalogs is already available; others
will join later.

International connections on the network level went
into operation in January 1990. The current state today is:

o+ Two lines with TCP/IP to CERN, each 2 Mbit/s. This
gives access to the European part of the Internet and
access to the NSFnet via the EASIgate T1 link to Cor-
nell.

with 64kbit/s; this link is the backup route to the
Internet/NSFnet.

o+ A TCP/IP 64 kbit/sec line to BelWue, a regional
research network in southern Germany.

A 64 kbit/sec connection to the COSINE/IXI pilot X.25 net-
work has been running since the first quarter of
1990. This infrastructure is mainly used for exchanging
X.400 messages, connecting to other X.500 DSAs and for
TCP/IP over X.25 and ISO CLNS over X.25 with the Euro-
pean Academic and Research Community.

SWITCHmail is the national X.400 MHS network which con-
nects the universities and research institutes to the
ADMD of the Swiss PTT and through COSINE-MHS to research MHS
networks in 19 countries. E-mail gateways to
EARN/BITNET, UUCP and Internet are also offered by SWITCH.

In RARE (Reseaux Associes pour la Recherche Europe-
enne, the European research network organisation), SWITCH
is an active partner in the COSINE MHS project as well
as in the COSINE pilot X.500 Directory Service pro-
ject and the COSINE Information Service project.

BARRNet is the Northern California regional hub of the
NSFNet, the National Science Foundation Network. BARRNet's
purpose is to facilitate scientific and educational communi-
cations using high-performance computer networking technol-
ogy and wide-area telecommunications utilities, and to pro-
mote collaboration, sharing of information, and wide access
to computer resources for research and educational purposes.
BARRNet was established in 1986 under a grant from the NSF
by a consortium of six members: Stanford University, the
NASA Ames Research Center, and the Berkeley, Santa Cruz, San
Francisco, and Davis campuses of the University of Califor-
nia. Since then BARRNet has grown to include several addi-
tional government and private research laboratories and more
than twenty-five corporate affiliates.

Four BARRNet sites-UC Berkeley, Stanford University, the
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and NASA Ames-are
connected in a ring by data circuits running at T1 speed
(1.544 Mbps). UC Davis, which is connected to UC Berkeley
by a T1 line, is also considered a core site; the remaining
sites are connected to one of the core sites, typically by
T1 or 56kbps lines, but in some cases by microwave or direct
Ethernet (10 Mbps) connections. BARRNet is connected to the
NSFNET by an NSS (Nodal Switching Subsystem) located at
Stanford University. Stanford is also the site of the
BARRNet Network Operating Center, or NOC.

Beginning in April of 1990, BARRNet's membership fees will
be adjusted to reflect size and type of organization, as
well as connection speed. Also during the spring and summer
of 1990, BARRNet will be implementing low-speed (9600 bps)
dedicated line services, with dial-up services available
shortly thereafter.

An Administrative Committee oversees BARRNet policy,
finances, and general operations. A Technical Committee
advises the Administrative Committee, and oversees day-to-
day operations such as routing.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

BARRNet's primary use is for scientific research or instruc-
tion by its non-profit members. Use of BARRNet in support
of a not-for-profit member's research or instruction is
acceptable. Use of BARRNet for scientific research or
instruction at for-profit affiliate sites may or may not be
consistent with the purposes of BARRNet, and will be
reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Commercial uses such as
billing or advertising are prohibited.

SUNET, or the Swedish University Network, interconnects
local and regional networks at universities in Sweden. The
goal of SUNET is to provide good data communications that
are beneficial to the universities. The network is used by
researchers and teachers of all disciplines. SUNET provides
Swedish academic and research users with network resources
for communications both within Sweden and around the world
through electronic mail, remote login, file transfer, and
other methods.

SUNET is a protocol-independent network based on Ethernet
(IEEE 802.3) interconnections. Currently only IP and DECnet
(and EARN) are carried over the backbone. The configuration
of SUNET is a backbone star network centered at KTH in
Stockholm with 64 kbps lines interconnecting the local Eth-
ernets to one nation wide Ethernet. The lines are intercon-
nected via remote bridges (Vitalink). Routers are used to
support the various protocols: Cisco for IP and VAXes for
DECnet (and EARN). SUNET also maintains a separate X.25 net-
work.

There are two interconnected central mail hubs, one for
IP/SMTP, RSCS/BSMTP and VMS/Mail and one for EAN/X.400 mail.

There are (at least) 3000 IP hosts and 650 DECnets in SUNET.

SUNET has international connections to

The Texas Higher Education Network (THEnet) was formed in
1986 through a combination of networking efforts at Texas
A&M University, the University of Houston, the University of
Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and the Univer-
sity of Texas System. It covers the state of Texas, with a
link to the Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores
de Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico. THEnet's goal is to pro-
vide and advance the electronic exchange of information in
support of the teaching, research, development, and related
collaborative activities of the Texas higher education and
research communities.

THEnet is not a homogeneous network utilizing a single net-
working protocol. Rather it is a network of physical con-
nections between and within organizations making various use
of IP, DECnet, SNA, RSCS/NJE, and compressed digital video
It provides researchers, faculty, and students the network-
ing "tools" that they need for their particular situations.
THEnet currently connects over 80 institutions, and consists

of approximately 3000 DECnet nodes, over 10,000 IP hosts,
appx. 150 BITNET nodes, and 10 IBM mainframe hosts connected
over SNA.

Network Services

Network information and operations management are provided
through the University of Texas (UT) System Office of
Telecommunication Services (OTS). The OTS provides both
network information center (NIC) and network operations
center (NOC) services to THEnet member institutions.

Informative documents are available on node nic.the.net
(Internet) via anonymous FTP, and THENIC (DECnet) via
default DECnet file access. See the file THENET.INDEX for a
list of available documents.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

THEnet is an NSF regional network, with access to the NSFNET
backbone through the NSS (Nodal Switching Subsystem) at Rice
University in Houston. THEnet is connected to the Space
Physics Analysis Network (SPAN) by DECnet routers at the
University of Texas at Austin and NASA Johnson Space Center.
Access to ESnet and HEPnet (ESnet-DECnet) is also provided
through UT Austin, an ESnet backbone site. THEnet has
external BITNET connectivity provided by Rice University via
connections to the University of Missouri and Louisiana
State University and by their participation in the BITNET II
project (NJE over the TCP/IP-based Internet).

ILAN, the Israeli Academic Network, established in 1984, is
dedicated to universities and academic, medical, and non-
profit research institutes. The network is widely used for
scientific, educational, academic, and research purposes:
commercial and political use is not allowed, either directly
or indirectly.

ILAN has installed six 64kb lines to create a central high-
speed backbone between Israel's seven major universities.
ILAN has international connections to EARN and Nysernet.

ILAN's former NJE traffic and all EARN/Bitnet network ser-
vices now run on ILAN's TCP/IP backbone. We plan a 56kb
link to Nysernet (the New York State Educational and
Research Network), a regional network of NSFNET (the US
National Science Foundation Network). In the interim, ILAN
will connect to Nysernet via a 9.6kb IP link.

Our backbone supports "Aleph," a project for the computeri-
zation and interconnection of all university library card
catalogs, which is near to completion. This system allows
students and faculty to search card catalogs at local
university libraries as well as libraries located at other
universities within Israel. Since this system was developed
long before the ILAN project, it was based on DECNET

_P_h_o_n_e: 1-800-336-0437


_D_e_s_c_r_i_p_t_i_o_n

The Merit staff operates a gateway between the Internet and
SprintMail, which allows messages to be exchanged between
SprintMail customers and Internet users. The gateway is
connected to Sprintnet and to the Internet through Merit's
connections to the NSFNET.

SprintMail, operated by Sprint International, is a commer-
cial X.400 electronic mail network providing services to US
customers and access to other networks domestically and
internationally. Formerly known as Telemail, SprintMail
uses the Sprintnet (formerly Telenet) public data network
for its e-mail connections.

Merit provides hardware and software maintenance and
administration and network operations (via the Merit Network
Operations Center) for the Internet gateway; Sprint provides
Sprintnet connectivity and user consulting and registration,
as well as gateways to other X.400 networks.

The gateway is a Sun SPARCstation-I running Sun OS 4.0.3 and
Sunlink MHS. An X.25 link to Sprintnet is connected to the
Sun's serial port at 9600 bps. Protocols used are X.400
Message Handling System, X.225 session layer, X.224 tran-
sport class 0, and X.25. On the Internet side, the Simple
Mail Transfer Protocol (RFC-822), Transfer Control Protocol,
Internet Protocol, and Ethernet protocols are used.

_________________________
The information in this section is provided in accor-
dance with the copyright notice appearing at the front
of this guide.




September 22, 1990 NNSC Section 5.35, Page 1








The gateway supports a directory function that allows
SprintMail customers to be registered with a mnemonic name
which can be used by Internet users when sending mail.
SprintMail users who wish to register can contact Sprint
Customer Service.

Merit provides domain name service for the SPRINT.COM domain
as well as for some other domains on behalf of some
SprintMail customers. For example, the COMPMAIL.COM domain
is owned by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering) Computer Society but is operated by Merit as
part of the gateway function.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

From the Internet to SprintMail
To use the gateway, an Internet user can specify a
registered SprintMail alias name, in the form:

[email protected]

Alternatively, the full X.400 Originator/Recipient (OR) name
can be specified, (all on one line), for example:

/pn=John.Doe/admd=Telemail/o=Sprintintl/c=us/@Sprint.COM

The Internet host name after the at-sign, @, can be
SPRINT.COM or another domain supported by the Merit gateway.
X.400 OR names consist of a list of parameters and their
values. X.400 parameters in OR names that can be used by
the SprintMail gateway include:


ADMD Administrative Management Domain
PRMD Private Management Domain
PN Personal Name
G Given Name
S Surname
DD.UN User Name (DD is "Domain Defined")
O Organization
C Country (two-letter abbreviations must be used, for example, US, GB, JP)


From SprintMail to the Internet
When sending mail from the SprintMail X.400 environment to
the Internet, the native syntax of the sender's system
should be used. Use an "ADMD" of TELEMAIL, "PRMD" of INTER-
NET and "Country" of US, along with the "RFC-822" "domain

defined" attribute to specify the user's Internet mail
address. For example, to send mail from the SprintMail sys-
tem to an Internet user whose address is
[email protected], type (all on one line):

(Site:Internet,ID:)

The angle brackets "< >" are required. The "(a)" replaces
the at-sign, @, because that and most other special charac-
ters are illegal as specified in RFC 987, which makes it
necessary to substitute "(u)" for underscore, _, "(b)" for
bang (exclamation point), !, "(q)" for a quotation mark, ",
and "(p)" for percent, %.

Resolving Problems

If a message sent across the gateway cannot be delivered,
the gateway will send a return message to notify the sender
of nondelivery. That notification message will explain the
problem with the mail address. If you have further ques-
tions, call or send e-mail to Sprint Customer Service.

Center (SDSC) and, by extension, with NSFNET.

Participating organizations may use the network to login
remotely to SDSC's supercomputer, parallel machines, and
visualization resources; transfer files; send and receive
electronic mail; and connect to other resources on NSFNET.
Some organizations also receive software support. If an
organization's network device(s) support(s) SNMP, the link
is monitored for outages 24 hours/day seven days/week.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

Connections to SDSCnet are dedicated links primarily at 56
Kbps and T1 speeds using the TCP/IP or DECnet protocols.
(OSI protocols will be added when they become available.)
Links to BITNET are also available for institutions that
wish it and that qualify as members of CREN.

_W_h_o _C_a_n _U_s_e _S_D_S_C_n_e_t

A connection to this network is available to any academic,
industrial, or government organization not otherwise con-
nected to NSFNET that seeks such a connection. The cost
depends on the preferred speed, network device, protocol of
the connection, and the types of services required.

WiscNet is a nonprofit association that provides access to
national network resources for higher education institu-
tions, mostly in the state of Wisconsin. The primary pur-
pose of WiscNet is to provide access to the Internet.
WiscNet provides no direct services to end users, but rather
acts as a conduit to the resources of the Internet and makes
possible interchange of information using electronic mail
and network news.

WiscNet is governed by a board of directors consisting of
one member from each charter member institution plus the NSF
proposal investigators. The board is reponsible for setting
broad operating policy, establishing direction, establishing
membership categories, and assessing membership fees. A
Network Planning Committee works with the operating agent on
network design issues.

The Madison Academic Computing Center at the UW-Madison pro-
vides day-to-day operational support for WiscNet. This
includes a Network Operation Center that provides problem
reporting and resolution services 24 hour a day, 365 days a

The Australian Academic and Research Network (AARNet) is a
national network that interconnects the major academic and
research facilities within Australia. The network connects
all Australian universities, the Commonwealth Scientific and
Industrial and Research Organisation (CSIRO), and many other
government, commercial, and industrial research facilities
in Australia.

Internally the network uses a mix of 2-mbit and 48-kbit
leased lines and multi-protocol routers to provide the con-
nection infrastructure.

The network supports national TCP/IP and DECnet Phase IV
services. The TCP/IP network is interconnected to the Inter-
net via a PACCOM link to FIX-West at Mountain View, Califor-
nia. At time of writing this international link uses a
256-kbit satellite circuit.

ARNET, a TCP/IP network connected to the Internet, is the
major science and research network of Argentina. It con-
nects approximately three hundred sites, mainly universities
and research organizations. ARNET provides electronic mail,
USENET News, file server, and electronic mailing list ser-
vices.

Like other cooperative networks, ARNET has no central plan-
ning or central authority. The current international link
and the top-level AR domain are managed by the UNDP (United
Nations Development Programme), Project ARG-86-026, at the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MREC), together with the Secre-
tariat of Science and Technology (SECYT). For the time
being, the top-level subdomains are administered by the
UNDP/MREC project.

ARNET is a store-and-forward message network based on the
Unix communications facilities. The international elec-
tronic mail gateway and USENET news backbone, atina.ar, is a
'386 machine running Unix System V connected to the MREC
Local Area Network. The network is connected to the Inter-
net through a satellite link to SURANet at the University of

Maryland.

Most ARNET connections are over the public telephone network
or the public packet-switching network, ARPAC, using the
UUCP protocol in different environments. USENET news and
most electronic mail traffic is brought to ARNET from
uunet.uu.net via Internet.

Several major nodes, such as secyt.gov.ar (Secretaria de
Ciencia y Tecnologia), dcfcen.edu.ar (Departamento de Compu-
tacion, Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales, Universi-
dad de Buenos Aires), and opsarg.org.ar (Organizacion Panam-
ericana de la Salud), call atina.ar over telephone lines,
PSN ARPAC, or leased lines to distribute mail and news
traffic to other nodes. Many nodes use various implementa-
tions of UUCP for MS-DOS with limited functionality.

Future plans

There is a cooperation agreement between the UNDP/MREC pro-
ject and the SECYT to distribute Internet services. The
first stage will be the installation of a couple of Unix
boxes at major regional sites, interconnected through the
PSN ARPAC and national satellite links using UUCP. The
second stage will be the migration from UUCP to TCP/IP.
There are under study different ways to distribute Internet
services throughout the country, and to upgrade the interna-
tional link to the Internet.


_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

ARNET's IP number is 140.191. Several bits of the address
are reserved for subnetting. The subnet mask is
255.255.254.0.

The current MX-host for the AR domain is uunet.uu.net.
Domain Name Service for AR domain is served by NS.UU.NET and
UUCP-GW-1.PA.DEC.COM. Most systems on ARNET use the Inter-
net addressing scheme and the UUCP bang notation.

TANet, the Taiwan Academic Network, is a pilot project
undertaken by the Ministry of Education and Universities
Computer Center to establish a common national academic net-
work infrastructure. To support research and academic
institutions in Taiwan, TANet will provide access to unique
resources and opportunities for collaborative work. TANet
will be composed of most of the Taiwan Internet community,
including industry networks such as SEEDNet (Software
Engineering Environment Development Network).

Network Organization:

The management structure of TANet is a two-layer hierarchy.
The TANet network service center (TANSC) is to be responsi-
ble for the national backbone network and management of
international links. Within each regional area, a regional
network service center (RNSC) will provide necessary ser-
vices and support connections to the TANet backbone from the
local-area network/campus network of each
university/institution. At present, TANSC is run by the
Ministry of Education computer center, and each RNSC is run
by a major local university.

university/institutions may apply for membership and be
connected to TANet after obtaining their membership
application.

Protocols:



July 31, 1992 NNSC Section 5.44, Page 2








The network protocols will initially focus on TCP/IP on
the TANet backbone. Regional networks may support multi-
ple pro- tocols and additional facilities (including X.25
transport or dial-up services) on a local basis in accor-
dance with regional requirements. Support for OSI (CLNS)
routing will be introduced in the near future. Existing
Taiwan BITNET and ifNET (information NETwork) applica-
tions (including electronic mail delivery, NetNEWS, and
file transfer) will be supported over TANet via IP con-
nections.

Network Topology:

The network implementation uses a ring/mesh topology. It
interconnects by intelligent routers and high-speed
leased circuits/LANs together.

High-speed T1 (1.544 Mbps) circuits were installed
between NSYSU and NTU, MOECC, NCU, NCTU, NTHU, and NCKU.

NTU, NTHU, NCHU, and NCKU are now 9.6 kbps for backup
purposes (they will be changed to at least 64 kbps in
1992). Dynamic ISDN links are also intended to provide
backup services in the event of failure of a primary
link. The bandwidth of each local link will depend on
its local requirements; global considerations will dic-
tate further moves toward higher bandwidths on the back-
bone links.

A 64 kbps link is now installed from the Ministry of Edu-
cation Computer Center to Princeton University, and will
be upgarded to 256 kbps before the end of 1992. This
link will couple TANet to both JvNCnet and NSFNET..kp

EMBnet is a project to develop the infrastructure for access
to biotechnology information services for the research com-
munity in Europe. The project includes the formation of a
network for access to, and exchange and analysis of, data of
importance to molecular biology and biotechnology.

The network is based on nationally-appointed centres in
European countries, appropriately staffed and equipped to
provide a biocomputing service and to develop network-based
services within their country. Additional nodes are involved
as hosts of databases or specialised facilities. Current
nodes and their contact representatives are listed below.

Initial network activities have centred around daily distri-
bution of nucleotide sequence data from the EMBL Data
Library using Internet, and sometimes DECnet over X.25.
National EMBnet nodes therefore maintain remote copies of
the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database for on-line access of
further re-distribution within their country.

One main goal is to develop bioinformatics and its practice
in general. Approaches and solutions are discussed among
the project members via mailing lists, newsgroups and at
annual workshops.

Other activities and projects include promotion of computer
conferencing, remote access to specialised facilities (eg
sequence similarity searching on massively parallel comput-
ers), a training programme in bioinformatics, evaluation and
implementation of Gopher servers, remote sequence database
updating mechanisms.

In most cases the services provided by national nodes of
EMBnet are intended for their national research community.
In some cases there is a charging system, especially for
commercial users. Other entries in the Internet Resource
Guide (eg EMBL Data Library) will give more specific
details, or contact the resource directly.

EMBnet received financial support from the EC BRIDGE pro-
gramme, 1991-94. Major financial support is received by
most of the national nodes to establish and run their ser-
vices.

In 1990, the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) founded, as
part of the UK Human Genome Mapping Project, a Resource Cen-
tre (HGMP-RC) at the Clinical Research Centre (CRC), Harrow,
Middlesex. The objectives of the HGMP-RC computing are to
establish and make available databases of genes, genetic
markers and map locations, and to develop new computing
environments and methods for acquisition and analysis of
such data. Computing and networking facilities were
developed by the MRC to provide online computing support to
the Project.

The facilities are connected to a number of other computing
systems in centres of genetics and molecular biology
research excellence worldwide through national and interna-
tional wide area networks (WAN's) including the European
Research Backbone Network (EBONE), INTERNET, Public Data
Networks (Packet Switching and Telephone) in the UK and
overseas, research and academic networks in the UK and over-
seas, European Molecular Biology Network (EMBNet) and oth-
ers. Direct connectivity to US laboratories was implemented
using a high-speed communication link, the UK-US 'fat pipe'.

A great deal of effort has been spent on improving services
to the scientific community. Molecular genetics databases,
application software and miscellaneous services are

Advanced Network & Services is a U.S.-based network service
provider that offers connections to the Internet at a
variety of bandwidth levels, including 56 Kb/s, T1, 10 Mb/s
and T3. Currently, ANS has the only nationwide computing
network operating at higher than T1 speeds. ANS began by
serving only sites sponsored by the National Science Founda-
tion, and the NSFNET remains the largest segment of the ANS
network. However, today the company provides enterprise and
gateway attachment services to commercial organizations,
including other network and information service providers,
as well as research and education institutions and govern-
ment agencies. The fiber optic transmission facilities of
the ANS network are provided by interexchange carriers, and
the core nodes of the network are co-located at the carrier
points of presence (POPs), which are staffed around the
clock. The network's operations center is located at Ann
Arbor, Michigan, and also provides continuous service.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

The ANS network is accessible through direct attachment or
through gateways from the National Science Foundation Net-
work, private networks or public regional networks.

agencies that have signed the ANS Acceptable Use Policy as
part of their contractual agreements with ANS are free to
use the company's network to send and receive information
related to research and education. Any commercial organiza-
tion that has signed the ANS CO+RE Acceptable Use Policy and
the appropriate agreements for sending and receiving infor-
mation that is commercial in nature, that is, not related to
research and education, may use the ANS network. However,
commercial traffic may not be sent through a public regional
network unless the network has signed an agreement with ANS
CO+RE allowing this type of traffic to be carried across its
gateways.

tion and support


The NIC works closely with network Host Administrators, Node
Site Coordinators, domain administrators, network coordina-
tors, network protocol groups, vendors, contractors, govern-
ment agencies, and military sponsors to assist new users and
potential subscribers in obtaining pertinent network infor-
mation.

The NIC provides databases and information servers of
interest to network users, including the WHOIS "white pages"
registry, the NIC/Query browsing system, TACNEWS, and the
official DoD Host Name Service. The NIC is the source for
official DDN protocol documents (other than the MIL-STDs),
as well as other DDN documents, and maintains the RFC
(Request for Comments) collection. Many of the online files
are available through the NIC's automatic mail service,
[email protected]

The NIC registers hosts and domains, assigns IP network
numbers and Autonomous System Numbers, and provides hostname
translation tables and domain name system server files to
the DDN Internet. The NIC also registers network users and
issues MILNET TAC access cards.

ONLINE FILES

The NIC maintains many online files that are available to
network subscribers via the file transfer protocol (FTP) or
Kermit. These files contain information about protocols,
site personnel, hosts, and other subjects relevant to net-
work users. See the file netinfo/00netinfo-index.txt for an
index to the files in the netinfo directory. See also the
DDN New User Guide or contact the NIC User Assistance ser-
vice for more information. Other publicly accessible direc-
tories include PROTOCOLS, RFC, IEN, SCC, and DDN-NEWS. Each
of these directories has an index in the format
00directory-index.txt or directory-index.txt in order to
allow users to quickly identify the files they need.

REGISTRATION SERVICES

The NIC is responsible for the registration of users, hosts,



July 8, 1992 NNSC Section 6.2, Page 2








domains, IP network numbers, and autonomous systems numbers
(ASNs) for organizations connected to the DDN Internet.

To register a new user with the NIC, send a request to
[email protected], the NIC's role mailbox for user
registrations. The template for user registration data can
be found in the online file netinfo/user-template.txt. The
NIC registers users from the Military Community, primarily
by accepting and processing templates from MILNET host
administrators. These requests often involve TAC Access--
i.e., dialup access to a MILNET host via a Terminal Access
Controller. The NIC issues and distributes TAC Access Cards
to users who require the service. In general, the NIC
registers users from the Internet community only if they are
POCs for a domain or a network.

To include a new host in the DDN Internet Host Table, an
administrator must complete the template found in
netinfo/ihost-template.txt file and return it to
[email protected] To be included in the Host Table, a
host must act as a domain or IN-ADDR server, be a gateway,
or be essential for mail routing.

Twice weekly, host information is generated into the DDN
Internet Host Table as netinfo/hosts.txt, which is a listing
of the hosts, gateways, and networks attached to the Inter-
net and registered with the NIC. From this file, two addi-
tional files are generated: hosts.txt.Z, a UNIX compressed
version of the hosts.txt file; and mil-hosts.txt, a complete
listing of MILNET hosts from the hosts.txt file.

Domains are registered via the domain template found in the
NIC online file netinfo/domain-template.txt. New domain
information is installed in the seven DNS root servers twice
weekly. Information on the root servers is kept in
netinfo/root-servers.txt. The domains registered with the
NIC are listed in netinfo/domain-info.txt. A listing of the
netaddresses of the domain servers for individual top-level
domains can be found in netinfo/domains.txt.

To obtain an IP network number assignment, a network POC
must complete the template in netinfo/internet-number-
template.txt and returns the template to HOSTMASTER. The
file netinfo/networks.txt contains a complete list of
government-sponsored networks.

Address-to-hostname inverse resolution is accomplished via
IN-ADDR domains, which are registered in the domain root



July 8, 1992 NNSC Section 6.2, Page 3








servers via an IN-ADDR template sent to the HOSTMASTER mail-
box. This template is located in the file netinfo/inaddr-
template.txt.

To obtain an autonomous system numbers (ASNs) assignment, a
user must complete the template found in netinfo/asn-
template.txt and submit it to [email protected]
Assigned ASNs are listed in netinfo/asn.txt.

POC information on individuals who are not already
registered with the NIC is extracted from domain, network,
and ASN templates and automatically placed in the WHOIS
database.

_W_h_o _C_a_n _U_s_e _t_h_e _R_e_s_o_u_r_c_e

Anyone who is connected to the Internet can use the NIC's
WHOIS services or obtain its public netinfo files via FTP.

As part of a network mapping project, we have implemented a
TCP-based geographic name server. In response to queries
consisting of a city name and/or ZIP code and an optional
state and/or country abbreviation, the server retrieves a
variety of data from a database containing information on
all US cities (~150,000). Queries containing UNIX ed(1)-
style regular expressions are also supported.

The geographic names database contains state, county, lati-
tude and longitude for all US cities. It also contains 1980
census population, elevation, area code, and ZIP code for a
large subset of the cities, as well as a small number of
international cities. The database contains information
about other geographic features such as counties, states,
rivers, lakes, summits, etc. in addition to populated
places.

The raw data were obtained from the United States Geodetic
Survey (USGS) and the US Postal Service. USGS is developing
a Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) as the main
repository for its ongoing National Gazetteer project.

_D_e_s_c_r_i_p_t_i_o_n

The NEST simulation package developed at Columbia is an
environment for rapid prototyping and simulation of distri-
buted networked systems. NEST users can develop and test
distributed systems and protocols (from crude models to
actual system code) within simulated network scenarios.

NEST is organized as a simulation server, responsible for
execution of complex simulation scenarios, and a separate
graphical interface for simulation control. The
client/server model permits distribution of NEST over a net-
work environment. Thus, complex simulations may be migrated
to powerful remote computational servers. Alternatively,
complex studies/development efforts by multiple teams may
utilize a shared multi-site simulation/integration testbed.

Simulation servers are created using the NEST library, a C-
language library which runs under most Unix variants, and on
POWER (IBM RS/6000), SPARC, MIPS, 680x0 and VAX architec-
tures. The NEST library provides a simple, high-level
message-passing facility among a set of concurrent light-
weight processes which simulate a distributed system.

The interface provided by the NEST library allows users to
link in their own C code and run it on one or more nodes in
a simulated distributed environment. NEST provides the
_________________________

dance with the copyright notice appearing at the front
of this guide.




September 4, 1992 NNSC Section M.5, Page 1








following operations in this environment:


o+ send messages to neighboring nodes

o+ receive messages (optionally, with timestamps)

o+ check for available messages

o+ control passage of simulation time

The user can also provide C code which simulates the
behavior of a channel, and associate it with one or more
communications channels. More than one function can be
associated with a channel, and the following operations are
provided:


o+ alter contents of messages

o+ control transmission delay of messages

o+ drop messages (cause them to not be received)

Finally, a monitor function can be provided by the user,
which runs periodically in the simulation, and can perform
modifications to the network scenario as noted below in the
description of the NEST generic monitor. In addition, the
functionality provided by most available Unix libraries is
accessible within a simulation server.

Users interact with NEST through the NEST generic monitor,
an X-based graphical interface supporting editing and modif-
ication of simulation scenarios as well as dynamic reconfi-
guration of a simulation during execution. Thus, it is pos-
sible to study the dynamic response of a distributed system
to failures, burst-loads or other complex dynamical changes.

The nest monitor provides the following operations for mani-
pulation of the network simulation scenario:


o+ create and delete nodes

o+ create and delete links

o+ start and stop functions running on nodes




September 4, 1992 NNSC Section M.5, Page 2








o+ change the function associated with a node

o+ change the list of channel functions associated with
an edge

o+ change the weight parameter associated with an edge

o+ change the monitor function which runs periodically

o+ show the current status of a node in the simulation

NEST includes documentation and complete C source code for
both the NEST library and the NEST generic monitor. The
NEST library will run under most Unix variants, including
AIX, SunOS, Ultrix, 4.x BSD, and System V. The NEST generic
monitor is an X application which uses the XView library.
The currently released version of NEST is version 2.6.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

NEST documentation and full source is available via
anonymous FTP from cs.columbia.edu [128.59.16.20] in the

FAST is ONEstop shopping. It is a complete value-added ser-
vice that handles quoting, ordering, expediting and returns.
One purchase order with FAST allows customers to acquire
items easily and quickly from a very large vendor base.

The FAST broker currently serves more than 100 university,
commercial and government customers. As of June 1992, it
had acquired items from over 1,500 suppliers.

FAST's customers request quotes and place orders from FAST
via EDI (Electronic Data Interchange - standard email or EDI
X12). FAST sources (often in a fully automated fashion)
incoming rfqs and redistributes them to vendors who carry
the requested items.

FAST communicates with its vendors using EDI (standard email
or EDI X12) or fax. All vendor responses are collected by
FAST and sent back to the customers via EDI. The customers
pick the best quote/item and place the order from FAST via
EDI. FAST sends EDI orders for the items to the vendors.
The vendors invoice FAST and customers reimburse FAST.

FAST also offers a one-step quote-and-order option, where
the customer specifies what selection criteria FAST should
use when evaluating incoming vendor quotes. The "best"
quote is then automatically turned into an order by FAST.

Customers are charged an 8% service fee (8% of the cost of
the merchandise acquired through FAST) for the service.

FAST can be accessed via email over the Internet
([email protected]) or via EDI X12 over any commercial VAN (Value
Added Network).

The 326-page "VAX Book" attempts to answer most of the ques-
tions that University of Oregon users have had about using
VMS, EDT, the networks, statistics and graphics packages,
etc. Most of the concepts presented are illustrated by
means of annotated examples. A detailed table of contents
and index are included.

The book is available in either Digital Standard Runoff out-
put format suitable for printing on a line printer, or in
PostScript form suitable for printing on an Apple Laser-
Writer or other 300 DPI PostScript printer. I am also making
the raw .RNO files (and the code used to convert the guide
into TeX) available for those of you who are interested in
customizing the "VAX Book" for your own site.

CAOS/CAMM Center - Dutch Expertise Center
for Computer Assisted Chemistry


_A_d_d_r_e_s_s:
CAOS/CAMM Center
Faculty of Science
University of Nijmegen
Toernooiveld

_D_e_s_c_r_i_p_t_i_o_n

The CAOS/CAMM Center is the Dutch National Expertise center
for Computer Assisted Chemistry, funded by the Dutch
National Science Foundation NWO. It is an Academic Institu-
tion and it offers chemists an elaborate package of software
tools, for remote use on a "central" computer system.

The emphasis is on easy accessibility, achieved by the
application of menu controlled front-ends and interfaces and
on integration of the various tools and data bases. An exam-
ple of the latter is the interconversion of molecular struc-
ture files between structural databases, modeling software
and computational chemistry programs. All available tools
are presented to the user in a hierarchy of simple menus,
where the tools are arranged according to their application.
The Center supports its users through a combination of on-
line Help facilities, practical courses and the
(re)production of manuals. E-mail facilities, NEWS and Con-
ferencing systems are used to improve the exchange of infor-
mation and experience among the users, including the
Center's picstaff.

All tools and programs are arranged in packages, covering
four major chemical areas:

September 7, 1992 NNSC Section M.9, Page 1








A: CAOS (Computer Assisted Organic Synthesis)
Available tools are Reaction Retrieval Systems and
Fine directories and Synthesis Planning programs.

B: CAMM (Computer Assisted Molecular Modeling)
Available tools are 3-D Structural data bases and a
variety of modeling programs.

C: CompChem (Computational Chemistry)
Available tools are Advanced modeling programs, visu-
alization tools, the quantum chemistry literature
database and computational tools for both Molecular
Mechanics/Dynamics and Quantum Chemical calculations.

D: Area CAMMSA (Computer Assisted Macromolecular
Sequence Analysis; BioInformatics)
Available tools are all major nucleic acid and pro-
tein sequence data bases and programs for data base
query and retrieval, homology searching, protein
analysis, nucleic acid analysis, alignment and phylo-
geny construction.

Expert help is available on each of the systems supported by
the Center. All data bases supported by the Center are
updated on a daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly basis,
dependent on the rate with which new material is being pro-
duced and available. User interaction with the tools sup-
plied is fully structure oriented whenever applicable, i.e.
most input is by means of structural formulas to be drawn on
the screen and output is structure oriented where appropri-
ate.

It is the Center's policy to provide users with all documen-
tation that is available with a program or data base, and to
complement this information with on-line Help, with extra
manual and "introductions" where necessary and with document
files in a central document directory from which all
material can be down loaded.

_N_e_t_w_o_r_k _A_c_c_e_s_s

Access to the Center is possible in many different ways. The
route to be chosen will depend on a user's local situation.
Many routes connect to the Center's terminal servers which
will distribute incoming calls over the available resources.

1. DECnet. Only possible if you are setting up the con-
nection from a local VAX in The Netherlands.



September 7, 1992 NNSC Section M.9, Page 2








Use the command SET HOST CAOS

2. TCP/IP Available if your local machine has access to
Internet. (In principle world wide).

Use the command TELNET
caos1.caos.kun.nl(131.174.82.227) or
caos2.caos.kun.nl(131.174.82.228)

3. X.25 In principal available world wide when you
have access to an X.25 packet switching net-
work.

"Dial" number (0)204 18802008099 or if you
are in Europe and have access to the IXI
backbone (0)204 3044008699. This connection
is slower than routes 1 and 2 because they
use a 9.6 kb PAD. On response from the PAD
answer with a to connect to a termi-
nal server which will prompt with .
Type C(onnect) CAOS in response to be con-
nected to one of the Center's nodes.
