ARPANET-Internet Archival Material
A great deal of useful information about the early days of the ARPANET and
Internet, which used to be availble online in the early days of the Web, has
now disappeared, usually because the individuals who took the initiative to
host it have given up that effort.
In some cases, if one has a link to where it used to be (which one can
often find on other pages which are still up), one can use the
to retrieve the contents. In other cases, it is not so easy.
This page is a centralized resource to locate such resources. It provides
both links to content which is still available, and also hosts content
which is no longer available anywhere else. Please note that some resources
are listed more than once (in case of link-rot).
The current contents of this page are just a start. If you would like to see
something else available, or have something of historical interest which
you would like to make available through here, please let me know.
Content available elsewhere
Likely to be around for the future, reliably.
Note that the IETF archives are only available (at the moment) via
FTP, and as such, are not indexed by Google. Hopefully the link from
here will help these resources get indexed.
Who knows how long these will be available? (Ones marked 'mirrored' have been
archived by me, but are not available through this site - although if the
listed version disappears, and no other can be found, they can be added here.)
Content available here
If anyone has access to any of these, or knows their whereabouts, please let
