Network communication

    We have a Symbolics 3640 connected on one subnet at the University
    I am at.  We have UNIX host that we wish to communicate with over
    IP/TCP that is on another subnet.

    When trying to use the network communications from the Symbolics, we
    get that it can not find a gateway to the UNIX host.

    We have found software in the network manual for a
    service.  We, however, do not have a LISP machine on the
    other subnet that can be the gateway on a CHAOS protocal.

    Is there a way to set up a TCP or UDP protocal gateway so that
    we can get to this other UNIX host?  Communication works fine
    to UNIX hosts that are on the same subnet; the problem is
    across subnets.

There is some computer which is responsible for forwarding packets between
your two subnets.  That computer should be put into your namespace, with
its correct address and with that service triple attached.  That should be
