Named telnet devices are supported by Client Access V3R1M3 with PTFs to the TCP/IP and server code. Be sure to apply the latest PTFs, since there were some significant problems when this was first released. It's working fine now. Just do NOT set the CA "automatically re-connect" switch unless you are prepared to trap errors caused when the named device is not available. This will still cause a message loop situation because CA doesn't get notified of the problem (or ignores the notification - I don't know which) and blindly keeps retrying. Otherwise, it's working like a charm for us.
