You can only run one instance of VMODEM on any given OS/2 machine, but it
can
handle multiple virtual ports.  My OS/2 system currently has 3 nodes
running;
1 real modem and 2 virtual modems, both of which can answer Telnet on port
23
and VMODEM on port 3141.  My firewall accepts inbound telnet on port 2023,
and
forwards it to port 23 on the OS/2 machine.
