Please confirm if it is DLSw between the Cisco and OS running in Hercules?

Sorry for being obtuse.  There are a LOT of different things in IBM

Would you please clarify if you have the "Local" or "Remote" 3174?

Can "Local" and / or "Remote" 3174s be converted to the other end of the 

I ask because I think most "Local" 3174s expect the host to be channel 
attached.  Don't they?
