NWG/RFC# 350 R.M. Stoughton
User Accounts for UCSB On-line System UCSB
NIC 10549 18-May-72
For the past year UCSB has provided free use of the UCSB
On-line System to Network sites. Recharges for this
service are being paid for by the Computer Research Lab
with funds out of our current ARPA contract. Connect
time for the month of April totaled 152 hours.
Presently, all users are running on the same account:
User Number=196, ID Code=57372, User Name=ARPA. As
such, it is difficult to monitor the amount of use by
each site. Consequently, we are changing the login
procedure for Network users, effective 1 June 72.
Commencing June 1, the new login parameters will be:
User Name=<site destination>
Job Name=<your name> (NIC ID will suffice).
The appropriate site designation is listed at the end of
this RFC for each affilliation presently connected to
the ARPA network. Any site omitted from this list which
plans on running at UCSB should contact me at (805)
Network users of the UCSB On-line System are reminded
that these free accounts are provided for Network
experimentation. We also encourage use of this service
on a casual basis inorder that users unfamiliar with the
Culler-Fried System may acquaint themselves with some of
the facilities available. However, sites intending to
use the system on a production basis are requested to
open a private account to which computer charges can be
We will also continue to provide free remote batch
support on a limited basis. Again, this service is
provided as a convenience to Network sites who are
attempting to implement and debug Network software.
Sites submitting production jobs will be expected to
open a Computer Center account and pay for computer
charges billed to that account.
