For a system including a plurality of processors which are interconnected by a communications link through individual communication stations, a method of remote processor initialization is disclosed which provides a specific frame exchange procedure for the transmission of initial program load data from a source processor to an acceptor processor.

All stations are basically equal. Provision is made in each station to automatically generate a Request Initialization Frame under certain conditions when the attached processor is an acceptor, and for transmitting initial program data transfer frames between a start and a termination frame, when the attached processor is a source. Each station can be set to indicate the type of the attached processor, and to handle initialization frames appropriately.
