Under Linux, once you have the TNC connected, depending on how you 
configure it, it exists as a network device just like your Ethernet card 
(or any other network device )..  You can bind it to an IP address 
(issued to you by your local AMPR admin) and then you can ssh to it over 
the air just as you would any other network link..  Of course remember 
this can't be for business use, but for a while I had a backup link into 
my home network..
