Do you have a default route on your AS400 to your Linksys Router?  I would
first enable SSL for your AS400 Telnet server and open 992 not the unsecured
23.  But either way, you will need to do one of the two:
1. have a default route to your Linksys router
2. NAT inbound at our Linksys router to your internal IP scheme.

          NEXTHOP(LINKSYS router IP address)
