The transport I am referring to is the "Asynchronous Transport Behavior"
(view attachment: AsyncTransfer.mht) as mentioned in this setting in the
Reflection 5250 client software.  The Help info states the setting specifies
whether or not to revert to polling mode for Host interactions. To be
honest, I don't know if this setting is specific to modem connections,
however I have been warned repeatedly to check and disable this feature.

Can I gleam that this is a queer feature of a commercial product and that I
needn't worry about this with TN5250?

Are you talking about different modem types?  or... what do you mean by
"asynchronous or synchronous"  what would the difference be?  What does
the emulator do differently in sync vs. async?

I've used perhaps 6 different emulation programs, but I've never heard of
this before, except as it relates to async vs sync modems.
