Two of our Symbolics sites have operated independently for approximately
a year due to a physical separation of ~10 kilometers.  We recently gained
network connectivity, but, due to political (and network traffic)
considerations, want to use TCP rather than CHAOS.

I would like to combine the two sites into one which communicates only via
TCP.  Has anyone done this, or am I about to lose *big*? I'm willing
to sacrifice CHAOS specific commands (such as "show hosts"), but have
had no luck using the "set site" command without a CHAOS connection.
I don't find any mention of the NAMESPACE service being available via TCP 
which appears to be a necessity.

Alternatively, is anyone willing to share their experiences using Cisco
routers to route CHAOS traffic. (We tried bridging, but the traffic
load brought us to our knees)

Stuck in CHAOS,
