Sockets (?) on Symbolics to PC connection ?

    I am in the process of trying to network a PC with a Symbolics.
    Unfortunately, I don't know much about TCP/IP (or networking), but
    a friend who is handling the PC end has asked how I will set up the
    symbolics so that it will work with the following parameters:

      Solicited or Unsolicited

Solicited or unsolicited what?  If this refers to ARP, Genera doesn't
send unsolicited ARP responses.

      Protocol family wil be TCP/IP internet (AF_INET)
      Type of transfers for the sockets will be stream (SOCK_STREAM)
      Messages will be in ASCII format

What messages?  Genera uses whatever format is appropriate for the
application protocol in use.  In the case of protocols that support
multiple character sets (e.g. FTP) it uses ASCII.

    If someone could tell me how to do this, or point me in the right 
    direction regarding documentation/manuals, I would *greatly* 
    appreciate it.

There's very little configuration you have to do for Genera TCP/IP.
Just load the IP-TCP system.  If you also want the Lispm to be a mail
server, load the Mailer system.

See the "Bundled Network Products" manual for more information on
configuring the namespace for use with TCP/IP.
