The H316 was billed as the first under-$10,00016-bit machine from a major computer manufacturer. It was the smallest addition to the Honeywell "Series 16" line. The H316 was available in three versions: table-top, rack-mountable, and self-standing pedestal. This unit is the pedestal version and was also marketed by Neimann Marcus as "The Kitchen Computer," a somewhat improbable use!
The Series 16 computers were originally designed by Computer Control Company. This company was then bought by Honeywell (in 1966?).from http://communication.ucsd.edu/A-News/FA.tcp-ip/81.10.14_ucbvax.4417_fa.tcp-ip.html
BBN H316 and C/30 TAC
The Terminal Access Controller (TAC) is user Telnet host that supports TCP/IP and NCP host to host protocols. It runs in 32K H-316 and 64K C/30 computers. It supports up to 63 terminal ports. It connects to a network via an 1822 host interface.
The TAC's TCP/IP is intended to conform with the IEN-128 and IEN-129 specifications with the following exceptions: 1) IP options are accepted but ignored. 2) TCP options are not accepted. 3) Precedence, Security, etc. are ignored.
The TAC also supports Packet core, TAC Monitoring, Internet Control, and a subset of the Gateway-Gateway protocols.
For more information on the TAC's design, see IEN-166.
Currently, TAC's TCP/IP has been tested with several other implementations. This includes TOPS20 (BBND, BBNC, BBNA, ISID), Multics (MIT-Multics), IBM (UCLA), 11/70 Unix (BBN-Unix,EDN-Unix), and VAX Unix (BBN-VAX). All major features have been implemented except IP reassembly and TCP Urgent handling. These will be done in the near future.
