IIASA's computing power is basically built upon two main sources. The first, and obviously most important, of these sources for all IIASA users is the internal computer resource of the Institute based mainly on the PDP 11/70, which is run on the UNIX operating system of Bell Labs. The second major source of satisfying IIASA's user demand is based on external computer resources, such as the large IBM computers at CNUCE in Pisa, the CDC-CYBER 74 of the Technical University, Vienna, and the IBM computers with INIS/AGRIS data bases at the IAEA. At present, perhaps as the most frequently used external computer power, the TYMNET/TELENET network can be regarded as an external source of utmost importance. The purpose of this "TYMNET/TELENET Computer Network User Guide for IIASA Users" is to introduce the TYMNET/TELENET network to the users, to list those hosts (computers) which can provide services to IIASA users, and to give an overview of the databases and application programs accessible through the network. A short chapter of a more technical nature will explain to IIASA users how to work on the TYMNET/TELENET network. Chapter 2 of the "User Guide" provides information on the necessary administrative steps to be taken in order to utilize TYMNET/TELENET services.

The main purpose of this paper is to provide IIASA users with as much useful information on the TYMNET/TELENET networks and their services as possible. The most up-to-date information from various sources with a slightly different style and format has been compiled in this booklet. To save time and labor, many pages of this guide have simply been copied from their original source with few changes. For this reason, this guide should be regarded only as an internal Working Paper.
