    Does anyone have any expierence running tcp on Symbolics 3640's
    and 3675's ?
    We've installed an ethernet in our building and are using tcp
    to transfer files from unix (Wollygong tcp on a 3b2-400) to the
    Symbolics. We also have a AT&T 6300 using tcp from FTP Software.

    The problem is that while ftp works fine we can't get smtp to
    work. It seems that the Symbolics doesn't follow the format of
    smtp and usr a CR NL at the end of a line.

    We added a Sun 2 as a reference machine to clear up finger pointing
    at Wollygong. With this group of machines smtp works fine between
    the Sun, the 3b2, and the pc. To add to the confusion the smtp on
    the pc works to the Symbolics as well as to the others?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

As a reference, we send mail (such as this message) and receive mail
(such as your message) from all sorts of the Internet hosts using SMTP
using LispMs at our end. You don't say if SMTP works between the Sun
and the Symbolics.
