As of the latest release of Banyan VINES software, a Banyan server will do
IP routing between any interconnection of Banyan servers and associated
micros. It will pass VINES packets inside IP packets to enable server-to-
server communications, if desired. Micros may be connected via either
token ring or ethernet to the server, and must at present use FTP, inc
software for tcp/ip communications. Banyan is now offering a server license
for FTP software which saves considerably in the $ dept.
 Banyan plans to incorporate the FTP software into the server, making it part
of VINES, and hence more integrated for the user. Also, a gateway between
the Banyan mail system and SMTP is under development.
 Now if only all this were available "today".
