I don't know 2.9BSD's time frame (and did not look it up) so I can't say 
one way or the other.

Based on your response I'm going to assume that it's not possible.

I'd have to go back and look, but I think I have read about an NCP and 
IP speaking host in the last few months.  It may have been related to 

The idea is that it might be simpler to speak TCP/IP to such a machine 
and then connect from it to 2.9BSD, if 2.9BSD supported NCP.

If the OPs goal is to get network connectivity on an 18-bit PDP, then 
that might be another option that doesn't require shoehorning TCP/IP 
into said PDP.
