	    I have two questions::
    1) We have put our Symbolics to the Ethernet, and are able to reach some 
    of the 
    machines which are physically near to our machine. But some of them are 
    too far to reach from here. Those Unix machines could be reached by other 
    Unix machines by modifying the routing tables. 

	    For example, A is a Unix host which is unreachable from another Unix 
	    host B. But another Unix host C is reachable to both A and B. 
	    Then we simply modify the routing tables of A and B to route through C, 
	    and it works.

    Does anybody know how to change the routing table of our Symbolics? 

    2) Is it possible to connect Symbolics to an Imagen Printer?
	    If yes, HOW?

Yes, we used to have an Imagen connected to a Symbolics, now we use the
Apple LasarWriter -- it works much better.  We just connected the Imagen
to one of the serial ports on the Symbolics an ran it at 9600 baud.
There were some hassles in getting all the neat features to work, but it
can be done.  If you want more help request it from RLS at this site and
he *may* be able to help (if he can or wants to remember).

    As I'm in Korea, and I'm receiving slug once in a while, I would 
    be glad to receive your replies directly.
