There are several methods to encapsulate packets for transmission
locally or over the Internet:

- EtherType 0x0804
- IP protocol 0x10 (yours!)
- Unix domain socket
- TLS over TCP/IP (preferred transport across Internet)

There is a bridge/router that understands all these, written by
professor Björn Victor.  Various computer hardware and emulators support
different encapsulations: real Lispms use Ethernet, an LMI Lambda
emulator uses IP, KLH10 and SIMH use the UDP method, and the PDP-10/X
FPGA uses a Unix socket.
