Make him help you :)
Does IPRISM have any logging ? If so, it should show traffic from the
iSeries as either allowed or rejected. If it is allowed then he should be
able to track it through the firewall etc. If it is rejected then clearly he
needs to refine his rules further to make it allowed.
You can track the traffic going out of the iSeries using Netstat (although
this is pretty crude admittedly). Search through the local addresses for
port 80 and then make the request you should see the byte count change.
Any kind of decent network sniffer would also be able to locate and track
If you have a web server on your internal network - even if you have to set
one up temporarily - use that to test the RPG program and prove that it is
or isn't the RPG by grabbing some data from it.

Bill, the NA says that he has done this already, but it did not change the
results for the RPG ILE program. I had asked if they could shut down IPRISM
for 5 seconds while my program ran, but they are afraid to do that, they are
claiming that it is connected to the firewall.
