I third this idea. Using screen would be a good idea as well.

This reminds me a project I worked on last century were we had people 
direct dialing our facility over modems to use a custom DB front end 
presented using Citrix.

One of the big challenges was dropped calls. Persistence is your friend 
under these circumstances. At least the end users don't lose work.
