Not surprising.

Only if you could wedge the line analyzer in between the 11/70 and
the remote support device on the other end (i.e., a live session). I
do happen to have a couple of HP line analyzers - the ones that use TU58-
sized tapes, not the floppy version. I can follow the traffic and, indeed,
even synthesize some. We had some home-grown software that would simulate
bisync traffic and even an SNA logon sequence. Most sophisticated.

That'd be great. No hurry.
