	    Ok, I just got 8.0 loaded on our 3640.
	    Now Icannot seem to telnet or ftp to it.  I keep getting connections refused.
	    I have the ip-tcp system loaded and services enabled.

	There was an explicit change to TCP security in 8.0.

    As a matter of fact, it was made in 7.2.2. I also cannot telnet to my
    machines, although I can get ftp access (and I made the namespace changes way
    back when I brought up 7.2.2). I have changed to a new cable which has a
    non-default netmask (0xffffff00). There's no obvious way of telling the
    lispm's this, and not being much of a network type (a) does the Symbolics not
    care? and (b) if it does care, how is it told this information. I'm inclinded
    to beleive (a) since I can get ftp access. Also, I'm posting this to the net
    because I'm following up on a conversation AND I've gotten no reply or
    acknowledgement from customer-reports since I mailed my report in a few days

To set the netmask, add the INTERNET-SUBNET-MASKS user property to the
Network INTERNET object in the namespace, e.g.

User Property: INTERNET-SUBNET-MASKS (("" ""))

See pp.23-24 of the Genera 8.0 IP/TCP documentation.  Previously this
information was in the Genera 7.2 (or maybe 7.1) release notes.

As to being able to FTP but not TELNET, have you called
net:remote-login-on?  By default, remote logins are disabled if there is
a user already logged in.
