In 2019 I'm reading one RFC a day in chronological order starting from the very first one. More on this project here. There is a table of contents for all my RFC posts.

TIP questionnaire

RFC-352 is titled “TIP Site Information Form”. It's authored by David H. Crocker of UCLA and dated June 5, 1972.

The technical content

This RFC contains a questionnaire about whether your ARPANET site has special features enabled for Terminal IMP (TIP) users. Recall that the TIP is a low-end terminal that is connected directly to an IMP, bypassing the need for an expensive computer like a PDP-10. By collecting information about sites with special accomodations for TIP users, the hope is to make the network more useful in general for TIP users.
