                 SCENARIOS FOR USING ARPANET COMPUTERS

   This scenario booklet is provided to facilitate the use of ARPANET
   host computer systems via the ARPANET.  The objective of these
   scenarios is to aid a user in sampling host computers on the ARPANET,
   thereby stimulating this interest in using ARPANET.

   The scenarios describe the login procedure, the use of some simple or
   interesting facilities, and obtaining on-line help facilities such as
   on-line documentation and interactive dialog with experienced users
   via "link" or "message" type mechanisms.  The use of TELNETS for
   "piggy-back login" is included to help system programmers in
   debugging and testing their protocol implementations.  An exercise of
   editing and running a very simple program is also included, where
   appropriate.

   The scenarios assume the environment of the MIT-DMCG PDP-10 computer
   system, but are readily adaptable to use from other systems.  The
   annotated script is provided to assist you in the use of a particular
   host computer.  Comments are enclosed in parenthesis, and user input
   is underlined.  In the scripts, a carriage return is indicated by
   '<CR>', and a space by blank (i.e., no type).  Escape to local user
   TELNET is indicated by backslash, the default escape character in the
   MIT_DMCG system.  Additional blank lines have been introduced in many
   instances to improve readability of the script.

   ACKNOWLEDGMENTS:  The author wishes to acknowledge the help of Bob
   Bressler, Rich Guida, Bob Metcalfe, Jim Michener, and Neal Ryan in
   preparing this Scenarios booklet.

   NOTE:  Your comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
   Please direct all comments to Abhay Bhushan, Room 208, 545 Technology
   Square, Cambridge, Mass 02139.  (Tel. 817-864-6900 x1428).

   upper case mode.)

SRI (NIC) PDP-10 TENEX Network address 2.
_________________________________________

   NIC is best used in character-at-a-time mode with remote echo.  After
   connection is completed you should change your mode to full-duplex at
   NIC (their default is half-duplex).  NIC can also be used in half-
   duplex (with local echo), line-at-a-time mode, but use is not as
   convenient.  Although NIC commands are similar to BBN TENEX, the NLS
   subsystem is different.

_______________________________________

   (The Utah computer uses the TENEX Operating System, and is similar to
   the system at BBN.  The password for Network users will be:

   As yet, their logger is unavailable, and we have been unable to login
   on their system hence, no scenario script is provided.)

BBN PDP-10 (A) TENEX Network address 69
_______________________________________

   TENEX is best used in character-at-a-time mode with remote echo.
   However, as TENEX treats network users as half-duplex by default, you
   should either change your mode to FULLDUPLEX, or escape into NETWRK
   and request local echo.  At command level TENEX does not distinguish
   between upper and lower case alphabetics.  The programs "DOCTOR" and
   "LIFE" may not be available to you in the BBN PDP-10(A) system, but
   can still be used from the BBN PDP-10(B) system.

   The BBN PDP-10(B) is an experimental TENEX system similar to the BBN
   PDP-10(A) TENEX system (network address 69.).  Because of the
