Well I have finally figured out how to get into the off-line setup. There is a menu option that says "are you sure" when you select it so I didn't select it. 
On picking it you can select the keyboard that you present to the 3174 along with some other options. 

There are some (not very good) pictures here which I am sure I have sent Al before:-


As you can see its now really a pure Nokia product, so made in Finland.

I have added dumping the ROMs to my "To Do" list...

I was also told that the Cisco RFC also covers encapsulating Bisync but supporting that would be more work in Hercules. 
So a gateway might be a better approach.
