First things first.  Are you sure it is an async modem?  Some mainframes use a
modem type called bysnc (read expensive).  Does the PC call the mainframe of
vice versa?

Besides bisync many systems also use SDLC framing or token ring for the
low level link layer. As far as how it works I would go out and find a
book on the subject because it is a large and somethings complicated
monster.

Commercial on
If you are looking for a commercial product you might look at our web
site http://www.gcom.com. We support Bisync, SDLC for SNA on Linux and
some day token ring (we have it for SCO now).

1. LINUX-SNA : problem with sna tools

I install my kernel 2.3.39 with patch net-fun for sna connection ==> without
problem.
But, when i compiled sna tools, i didn't know what configured the snaconfig,
