​I am fairly sure that they do have TCPIP running on the floor system. But I'm 
not sure because we don't ftp to/from it and we use the VM "DIAL"
command to get a local non-SNA terminal to access the floor system. And I just 
don't remember.​

​That's what I'm wondering. They could be running a "null" type configuration 
where it is basically unusable because, for instance, there are no R/W 
filesystems and so no place for me to "install" my UNIX program.
