iSeries Access for Windows
All I want to do is to access the AS/400 from home....5250 emulation, green screen. I am connecting to the internet at home via a wireless modem. I have Access for Windows installed. TCP is installed. I don't know how to configure my PC to go thru my modem, connect to the internet and then to the AS/400.

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

For a secure connection, you need to create a VPN connection from your home network to your office network.

Here’s a list of a few ways you can do this:

  1. Setup an IPsec tunnel on your firewall
  2. Use a Router to Router VPN from your office to your home
  3. Install an SSL VPN or VPN concentrator

You can use Attachmate Reflection for the Web as another solution so you don’t need to have client access installed.

    There could be more involved then just connect to the internet and then your AS/400. If you have any sort of network security chances are your AS/400 is behind a firewall. You should try to find local assistance to get your pc on the internet. You will also most likely need to get who ever manages the AS/400 to help you get through any protections that are in place as well as tell you how you are allowed to access it from your home.

    We use a software package called "log me in". It was free for a long time now there is a small fee. It basically lets us connect to our work pc from home. With this, we can do anything from home we can do at our desk. We can run our client access green screens, run operations navigator and more....

    A company that I used to work for would not allow non-company owned equipment to access the company network, period.  They had a few websites that employees could access externally, including a web-based version of email but that was it. There was no way I could access (even if I brought it into the office) system with my personal PC.

    Our company now requires a VPN connection and it's only for company issued laptops. You have to sign a form saying you will not install ANY unauthorized software on said laptop. This has come to be because of the risk of a security breach. We have not had one, but due to what is in the news latley we want to be proactive. It is even to the point where our personal devices cannot connect to the corporate wi-fi. Unfortunately this may be the future of IT in order to protect corporate systems.
