What I suspected IBM was trying to do was claim they were doing this over the internet but use the same slow modem and configure it to use PPP versus SNA. Granted, the TCP/IP will run faster than SNA using the same hardware, but the real payback would be to use our high speed internet connections.

My system would LOVE being THAT up to date!!
