Let me rephrase or add to my original questions...

I have already, successfully loaded IP/TCP on the symbolics machine.
I have no difficulty in file transfers (via copy or ftp) or remote
logins.  My question is how do I write (or are there examples of)
functions that will send and receive packets of information from/to
programs/applications running on a symbolics and a PC.

The Ethernet that they are both on is a local net, with no outside
