In this paper we describe the implementation of a local area network of experimental capability-based computers. The architecture of these computers is unusual in supporting a persistent virtual memory with a very large address size, eliminating the need for a separate file store. Because the network extends this architecture by providing a global virtual memory with addressing unique across the network, the use of the network is fully transparent and existing software does not need to be modified in order to make use of remote facilities.
