I hope you see this auction in time, it shows only 5 hours left.

IIRC this would fill the bill with either the long or short variety of 
3270 adapter.

You of course need a device for the other end of the hose, (coax), such 
as a mainframe or 3174 controller, but this will make the PC into a 3270 
terminal.  I used it on several systems back in the day.

There is also a program, ind$file which will let you upload and download 
files to and from a mainframe included.
