Mike Brescia,

The symptoms described are not unusual for ARPA TACs. I used to get
similar symptoms many times before switching to a SUN. (i.e. Using a
terminal through a TAC connected to ISIA/TOPS20).

The working hypothesis was that the problem was caused by an
interaction between flow control on the Arpanet/Milnet, the TAC TCP and
the TOPS20 TCP. However, insufficient effort was put on the problem to
solve it (by the appropriate parties, namely BBN working with ISI).
