                   NCP Status Report:  UCSB/RAND

NCP Checkout

 UCSB an RAND recently conducted UCSB console to/from RAND console
 validation fo teh respective NCPs.  The exercise was simply to verify
 that the NCPs behaved according to Document #1 protocol.

What was Learned

 The UCSB and RAND NCPs responded as specified in Document #1.  RAND
 uncovered a few minor problems with their Network Services Program
 (NSP) that interfaces video graphics consoles to the NCP.  The nature
 of these problems were data format conversions and human factors
 aspects of display presentation of status information.

The Immediate Future

 1. Both UCSB and RAND will be happy to participate with other sites
 in verifying their NCPs.
 2. We intend to conduct additional exercises involving data re-
 configurations and file transmissions.
