There is TCPware which will provide telnet and ftp, but it costs some
serious money. I don't think it's possible to get Kermit to talk
over ethernet. The only other option I can think of is DECnet
(especially if the system already has it installed), with something
on the other end that speaks DECnet, such as Linux.
