VMS and X.25

I have been looking at various VMS and microVMS solutions for Tcp/Ip
(Excelan, Interlan-Micom, Wollongong, SRI, Hyperlink, etc.) and all
of them assume an Ethernet. How do sites connect lone VMS systems that
are geographically scattered over many kilometers? The expensive solution
is to build a 1 meter Ethernet, buy a bridge and connect that way. Do any
of these systems handle X.25? What h/w do you need to buy? Will the
Excelan and Interlan solutions work with an X.25 card or can an X.25
solution only be handled by a strictly software implementation (like
Wollongong or Hyperlink)? Is there a way to do it with a leased line
without Ethernet or a bridge?

Thanks,
Hank

P.S. Plz send all replies directly to me.
