Sorry folks,

Right after I sent this, I found out that the basic setup
definitely does work. If they bring it up manually, it connects
fine, so I suspect there's something wrong (perhaps a timing problem,
since the ss20 is much faster than the ss2) in one of our magical
startup scripts that query some of the special user defined X.25
features on this net and then rejigger the X25 paramater files.

So thanks in advance for all the replies I'm going to get,
and sorry for bothering the net so soon in the process.
