      Internet Domain Survey            Network Wizards                January 1997
       
       The Domain Survey attempts to discover every host on the Internet by doing
       a complete search of the Domain Name System.  The latest results gathered
       during late January 1997 are listed.  For more information see RFC 1296;
       for more data see the zone directory on ftp.nw.com, or http://nw.com.
                                                                     -- Mark Lottor
