I'm also using Personal Communications/2. I'm trying to get IBM's last revision
for OS/2 (never released), but I don't know if SSL was added to that version.
However, there's a chance that OpenSSL could transport the data if the 3270
emulation session was configured for it.

Rather than SSL, my site is using the Cisco VPN, equally unsupported by eCS.
