Actually ... I might end up buying some TA's for work, for a dial-in
bank. The reasoning there is that we need something that can do
Kerberos 5 password authentication for "dumb terminal" service, and you
can buy TA's that do all of the analog modem modulations as well as
ISDN. So I might end up buying a NetBSD box with one of the high-speed
multiport serial cards and a bunch of TAs (unless someone has better
ideas). Unfortunately, I can't dedicate some lines to PPP users and
some lines to "dumb terminal" users, so I need everything to be as
flexible as possible.
