Ran in to one of our backbone ATM techs on my way out for smokes...  He
said it should not be possible, unless you can figure a way to get the
card to think it has an NSAP address already, and then just blindly fire
out on various VPI/VCI's, hoping someone is listening.

Still, even then, you have to somehow hack a way to listen on a VPI/VCI
that isn't attached to a PVC on a switch...

I sincerely doubt it's possible without a debug version of the card or
somehow else set the card in to some sort of debug mode.

 Besides, including <std_ice_cubes.h> is a fatal error on machines that
 don't have it yet.  Bad language design, there...  :-)
