Roger:
I believe from our discussion that you have a RAS server, the contractor can
dial the RAS and start a TELNET session to the IP address of the 2nd AS400
(assuming they are both on the same Ethernet).  Also if you have internet
access to/from the Ethernet, you could also put a proxy server and map a
port to the telnet port (23) on the loaner AS400.  Then the contractor could
connect to the internet, and start a TELNET session to the IP address on the
internet that your proxy server listens on and route the session to the
AS400.  All this assumes that the contractor has a TN5250 emulator
installed.  If you don't have one try www.mochasoft.dk.

Let me know if I can be of any more help.
