DBridge is not a protocol translator. It is a facility to tranport
IP packets over the DECnet transport facilities. What you get in
ISO layers is
        TCP 7
                6
                5
                4
                3
        TCP 2 (IP)
        DECnet 4
                3
                2
        DECnet 1
Thus you get to use the web of DECnet point-to-point facilities and
long-haul stuff to move IP packets around. Same idea as IP over X.25.
