Sun sells no such interface; we support DECnet as an Ethernet end-node
only, and the sync drivers we sell do HDLC, SLDC, and Bisync using
the Sun CPU serial port, or optionally a Sunlink comm processor board.

Assuming you are planning on doing DDCMP with a DEC host of some kind,
I would imagine that it is possible to get a DMR11 driver from DEC
that supports HDLC (probably with X.25). I would think you would find
it easier to talk to many systems (including Suns) if you used
industry standard sync protocols such as HDLC.
