"…HASP…" MVS / OS/390 / z/OS term.
"…on our 11-750…" that sounds like a VAX term (11/750).

Brain:  Wait a minute.  These are different ecosystems.  Yes, they are 
supposed to be able to communicate, but is that what we're really 
talking about here?

"…Berkeley Systems Group…" that's decidedly BSD, like on a VAX (11/750).
"…leased line…" ecosystem agnostic, but common in IBM.
"…Bell 209 modems…" fits with my understanding of leased lines.

Brain:  Yep, it looks like we're crossing ecosystems.

Chuck, I think you are the first person that I've heard / read about 
with direct exposure to HASP on non-IBM platforms.  I've heard / read 
that it's supposed to be possible.  But I've not had first hand accounts 
before.  Now I have.  Thank you.
