Like Pete M., I'm a little confused. As far as I know, SNADS could not care
less what kind of network it's on, so you should be able to set it up
directly, not over TCP/IP. The 2 protocols can coexist just fine. We run
both between 2 400s over a TokenRing. You need various line, controller, &
device descriptions set up, but that's not _too_ bad.

If you want to use SNADS over TCP/IP, as David G. said, use ANYNET. But I
recommend that you do _not_ do so, if possible. You're paying the cost of
protocol conversion, which slows everything down.

JFlanary suggested FTP. So do I (Booth, you gonna jump in here, too?). It's
native TCP/IP, it's as fast as your network connection can be. It's also
very easy, much easier than anything in SNADS. You can transfer save files,
no prob. Just have the save file created on the remote system (If you
don't, the destination file is a physical file with rcdlen of save files.
Manageable, but why suffer unless you have to.), use binary mode in your
ftp session (execute the 'binary' subcommand—see, easy), use put subcommand
and you're done. Running in batch is also simple—a couple overrides and a
script in a source or text file.
