We have 7 remotes sites connected using frame relay from Sprint. Quite
expensive so we are looking at alternatives. Frame relay has 99.99% uptime
and there is an SLA in place. Sprint are moving away from the frame relay
market so it is pushing us in the direction of some kind of internet
connectivity which is actually better for us because we have a number of
sales users who travel and who would like to connect from home/hotels etc. 
Our problem is capital expense for such an overhaul of the network. It seems
we would require new routers to replace our old (but very dependable) 5394
workstation controllers. The headaches of administrating and securing this
type of network adds to the challenge.

Subject: [SYSTEM21] Remote Site Connections

We are a small company using System/21 with 3 remote sites. 

I would like to poll the group with a question for those of you who have
remote sites (100 users or less) connecting to your Iseries.

What is the most preferred and dependable architecture used for
connectivity between your headquarters and the remote sites?   

I.E. VPN via Internet, DSL, Frame Relay, Other?
