Pat, A T1 is 1.5 MB/sec. What Mike is looking to do is run over a 1GB adapter. I assume that his 2 AS400s are on the same LAN. Of course this is not over a WAN connection. Of course SNA does not care about the speed, however perhaps for what ever reason IBM decided not to support SNA over the 1GB adapters. I don't have one, so I can not say for sure. cjg Carl J.

SNA doesn't care how fast you run. The hardware adapters do. They have been hooking up full T-1 lines to IBM gear for a very long time. I understand that 1GB is a published number but I question how that can possibly run over any public network... "Maybe" over straight fiber, but wire lines over pswtn sounds a little far fetched to me. Mike Shaw wrote: > > Carl, > > Right now we are doing both traditional SNA and TCP/IP over 100 Mb > Ethernet.
