You cant use an Analog modem with the mainframe. Mainframes use a different type of protocol which are not supported by the Modem. Mainframes uses gateways in order to communicate with other computers which are not part of the structure.what you need are NIC cards to set in the 2 computers that you want to communicate with. and use Ethernet.

It depends on what you want to do with the modem.

Modern IBM mainframes, just like ET, can "call home" to report
results of diagnostics which were run on the service-processor.
I've seen an IBM technician arrive with a replacement-part,
much to the surprise of the system-programmers,
who hadn't noticed that anything was wrong.
