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.
