I haven't checked into this yet. We're running under VMS 4.2 and
it run as one *big* task. CPU cycles aren't a big deal, memory
might be on some systems.

Yes, DECnet, ARP, and IP each have unique Ethernet protocol types.

Eventually, I plan to send the changes to Bdale Garbee at
winfree.n3eua.ampr. I still have some work to do, though.

As noted above, we're using VMS, and my changes to the KA9Q package
were *very* VMS specific, so I'm not sure we can help.

You are welcome.
