Real time ATM Transactions

PC/Windows Connectivity
My company is a core data processor for financial institutions. One of our customers is wanting to switch to a real time ATM/Debit card interface. We are running an IBM AS/400, and Transfund (U.S. Bank) tells us that they normally connect directly to an interface on the AS/400 to verify the availability of funds for the transaction. We have multiple financial institutions running on our system, and this is where the problem comes in. The FDIC has told us that we can not let a 3rd party vendor access our AS/400 directly. We are going to need a PC server to sit in between Transfund and our AS/400. Neither us, nor our core software vendor have the expertise to write the interface needed on the PC. Writing the interface that runs on the AS/400 is no problem. We need to know if there is software available that we could install on the PC that would pass information back & forth to the AS/400 in a 24/7 environment. Does any one have anything like this set up that is using Transfund? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jason

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

I dont’t know of anything commercially available to do what you are asking, but we have the same situation with one of our interfaces. We had to write our own Visual Basic 6 program to act as an intermediary using ADO. You might also check out ASNA Viaual RPG As they have a Compiler that lets you write code for a PC and also have some other software that makes accessing databases directly on the iSeries. the code is standard RPG code so your existing programmers could possible develope the interface. I would say that the FDIC is clueless about the various methods of accessing the iSeries. We currently have data sent into our iSeries directly. Even the TCP/IP data that we received through a canned software package has to go through data queues/message queues.
