I just realized that gnomie has another use I didn't think of..... I can make it my URL-Viewer in pine on bradfitz.com and have links I select in my text-based HTML mail viewer open in IE also. Since it works just over TCP/IP, it doesn't matter where the hosts are... I just need to modify the client now to read a config file and take a password and do some challenge/response with the server.
I need to do some homework.... I didn't do any last night.
