The Microsoft SNA Server has a TN3270 option that maps to an SNA session at
the server. You could set up a Windows server at the OS/390 with Host
Integration Server (new name for SNA server) and have the TN3270 sessions
map to SNA sessions on the mainframe. That gives you IP connectivity end to
end. Instead of using streml3270 you would use Telnet.
