I've set up a few ATMs. I have used DSLw+ & STUN on 25xx ciscos and
FRADs. I have also seen modems used. The machines themselves all ran OS2,
but some banks were talking about moving to NT (this was before Win2K).
we did a small bank project at a place i worked a couple of years ago.
the ATMs (mostly NCR, one Diebold) were all Bisync, but were converted
to SNA in the course of the project. all but one (the Diebold) ran
at 9600 baud; the Diebold just would not work until we slowed it down
to 4800 baud.
the technology involved was really pretty icky. i don't ever want to go
near a small bank network again.
