Stanford wrote gateway code to do this using the multibus SUN 3Mbit ethernet
card. As I remember they encapsulated PUPS inside of IP packets.

I'll dig up all the code I have for this. At one point a LONG time ago I had
a SUN 3 configured with a multibus-VME converter with one of these cards and
could watch packets being sent by the sniffer program running on an Alto.
