       I realize that this is probably more appropriate for the customer
       support line, but I'd kinda like to get this done tonight if someone

       (1) After installing Genera 8.1, I notice that when I ftp from
	   a sun to the symbolics, I get:

	   ftp <symbolics>
	   Connected to <symbolics>
	   421 FTP permission denied to <sun-host>

	   Okay, I'm sure I've got something inappropriately configured.
	   any hints as to what?

    What release are you upgrading from?

    I believe Genera uses the Secure Subnets attribute in the site namespace
    object to decide whether to allow file transfers.  Prior to Genera 8.0,
    lack of a Secure Subnets entry for a particular type of network meant that
    all subnets are allowed; in 8.0 it was changed to default to not allowing
    any subnets of that network.  Make sure you have an INTERNET entry in your
    Secure Subnets list, and that it includes the subnet with your Sun.

       (2) The X users guide says that the "genera" unix program can be
	   used to startup the UX boards, but can it also be used to
	   initiate a "Start X Screen" on a 3600?

    I think it should work, although I haven't tried it (I don't have a UX).
    The mechanism that it uses just uses generic RPC over TCP/IP.  You'll have
    to load the UX-Support system to get the Lispm side of the protocol (this
    system is useful to load for other reasons -- it includes support for the
    Unix remote execution and remote tape access protocols).

This works.  I use it all the time to poke around on our file servers
without having to walk downstairs.  Barmar is right that you need to
load UX-Support; UX-Support of course requires Embedding-Support and
