Are you saying that MFS will not allow a private connection between two 
routers located at the MAE facility, even if the connection is _not_ made 
using the MAE FDDI switch, but is instead a direct (e.g. HSSI or AIP) 
connection between the two routers??  If so, I haven't seen any 
documentation to that effect...
