Gary,

The most effective way to prevent ODBC access to AS/400 data is to write or buy
Exit Programs that monitor your network interfaces.  By setting Exit Points at
the network entrance to your system, you can block and/or regulate ODBC, File
Transfer (including FTP) and Remote Command request that are sent it's way.  The
IBM manual "Client Access/400 for DOS and OS/2 Technical Reference V3R1" 
explains
how to write exit programs, or you take a look at our offering at
www.400security.com .
