connection between Symbolics and explorer
I have a problem while trying to connect my symbolics to an explorer through
Chaosnet: when i try to edit a file lying on the explorer, or to do anything
equivalent, with the following command:
edit file vasco:gabriel;login-init.lisp
I get the following error:
Error: "" is an invalid name component for vasco-de-gama (a LISPM host).
(flavor:method :validate-component pathname)
Arg1: (SELF): #P"VASCO:FOO"
Arg2: (SYS:SELF-MAPPING-TABLE): #<Map to flavor PATHNAME 220076153>

... (various actions).
Clerarly, the symbolics understood that the explorer is a lisp machine
but was unable to handle correctly its pathnames. I tried to supply a
pathname with the LFMS syntax, but I got the same error. The only
difference was in the error message: the machine was recognized as an
The same thing happens when I try to log in the explorer with the
LOGIN toto :host vasco-de-gama
In the other direction (from explorer to symbolics) there is no
problem to connect, log in (or out) and manipulate files.
What must I do in order to be able to access to the explorer ?
