My primary objective is connecting KA10 ITS to the internet.  Can the
IMP software and the H316 simulator talk TCP/IP to an ehernet card?

Right.

I will certainly try to structure my additions so this will be possible.
Maybe something like this?

Simulated host -> IMP interface -> 1822 API -> emulated IMP -> sim_ether.

Looks like SIMH doesn't provide anything to do ARP, so I'll have to do
that too.
