Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s the normal way to connect PC to iSeries machine using TCP/IP, but to get a detailed answer you shoud provide more information like:
– where is the PC (or PCs) located ?
– specification of your local network (LAN):
firewall(s), routers, gateways
– do you plan to use TCP/IP over internet ?
– etc

I believe your iSeries machine is attached into a LAN already ?

    If you are using CA Express it is a simple as using the IP address that you have set your AS400 at. You will be using TELNET port 23, their are some other TELNET utilities like TN5250 that also use port 23.

    You need something on both sied that can talk to each other, such as ssh. On your PC you can get a free version of Putty. ssh should be part of most server OSs.

    I use GoToMyPc by Citrix. It is not cheap but very efficient and fast. You can connect to your office PC then to the iSeries from anywhere in the world through the Internet.

    Assuming you're talking about via the 'Net (firewalled): as far as I can tell, you'll have to open port 23 inbound to your iSeries. You need to have a serious look at the security issues (which are signifigant) before doing this. As for the interface, you can run a web server that will handle 5250 emulation in the user's browser (see symtrax or mochasoft) or you can install a lightweight emulator on the PC (same companies). If anyone knows how to do this w/o opening 23 on the firewall, let me know.
