Internet access
I have an AS/400 on a local LAN. A broadband cable modem allowing internet access to all pcs. But the AS/400 can only be accessed from [192.168.x.x] a local computer on the lan, but not the internet. Is there some sort of programmable switch/router/hub, device that will allow inbound internet traffic only to a specific IP address of the AS/400 and not the other pcs? Teh AS/400 is on a switch now on the network, and network has cable modem but no router.

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

If your broadband Modem/router does NAT (Network address translation) you can Translate Telnet port 23 SSL 992 from the external address of that router to the AS/400 Internal Address. I used this with a Company that did not have VPN into their network and it worked well. I would use the Mochasoft TN5250 Product it does better keep alive so Emulation does not shut down after some inactivity, and it is easir\er to do SSL if you set it up on your AS/400…..Rick

If your router doesn’t have NAT or port forwarding you can run a port forwarding utility on the first PC that the router/modem is attached to and direct anything on port 23 to your AS/400. I do this on my network and have one AS/400 and an iSeries both accessible by the internet (although they don’t use port 23).

I use a free utility from www.analogx.com and it’s never let me done yet.
