Help with Talk/Ytalk from Sun to VMS (have read FAQ)

(This is a second post.  After 12 hours, I never saw the first one appear.
 Hope this doesnt cause any trouble.  TBJ                                   )

I am a student at Georgia Tech and I have the very problem that is an example
in 2.15 of the FAQ.  Our new student computer is a Sun SPARCcenter 2000 now
and I need to talk to a Vax/VMS V5.5-2.  I have tried to use Ytalk on the Sun
and it doesnt work either (of course talk doesnt).  Wasnt Ytalk suppose to
fix the talk problem between Sun and Vax?  Or is there something else that
needs to be done?  I would apprec. any info that you may be able to provide.
Thanks in advance.

Thomas James

PS - Talk on the VMS machine will work, I have tried it on another machine.

TALK is implemented in several TCP/IP packages: TGV Multinet, CMUIP (PD),
but doesn't seem to be in DEC's UCX TCP/IP package.

What TCP/IP is running on the VMS 5.5-2 system ?
