Are you sure about INS? You might be thinking of NIS, formerly called
yp, the network information service.

        $ man nis

1. Remote unix (RS/6000) servers with dial-ins

Does any one out there have a following setup:

        Server:  RS/6000 servers at a remote site (e.g., California),
                 networked to an IBM mainframe (also at the same remote
                 site, possibly in an adjacent room and/or building) to
                 access large (GB and larger) datafiles.

        Users:   Dial-ins from another remote site (for example, Maine).
                 Users mostly dialing into the unix server to run large
                 compute-intensive jobs in the background (similar to batch
                 mode on the mainframe).  Most dial-up sessions would last
                 about 60-90 minutes over a 9600 baud line.

If you have/had a similar setup (or ever considered it), could you please
forward your experiences (good and bad), suggestions, do's and don'ts,
reliability, down time, performance, user satisfaction, and all other relevant
information.  Thanks in advance.
