Using multi-console feature I initiated a bbs telnet connect and did
some local commands.
The F4 sysop console reported the F5 bbs activity faithfully.

More about the failed session from the trace on the asy port:

The obvious differences are "port of access", "network protocol used",
and "where commands are executed".
In order to replicate last night will require some more time and LOOKing
on my part.
Jay reports being successful always / I have not / I don't know all the
variables involved.

Any suggestions on what specific attributes to further look for / or
