Fine, send me implementations for my SUNs, Encores, IBM/3090, Xerox
and Symbolics Lisp machines, Vaxes (UNIX and VMS), ATT/3B (SYSV),
IBM/PCs and Celerities. I am running some version of Internet
protocols on all of those right now and it is critical to our campus'
operation, research and educational business.

I await the software or list of vendors from you.

(maybe we should continue this argument on INFO-OSI which no doubt
everyone reads on their X.400/OSI systems anyhow.)
