  Advanced Research Projects Agency Network
  ARPANET
  
      (ARPANET) A pioneering longhaul wide area
     network funded by DARPA (when it was still called "ARPA"?).
     It became operational in 1968 and served as the basis for
     early networking research, as well as a central backbone
     during the development of the Internet.  The ARPANET
     consisted of individual packet switching computers
     interconnected by leased lines.  Protocols used include
     FTP and telnet.  It has now been replaced by NSFnet.
