I've had a first speed-read of the SNA and TCP/IP Integration Redbook;
published in 1999 it predates broadband connections!
I've been talking to the ISP and Technicolor (Router manufacturer) Tech
Support. Both were pretty unhelpful it has to be said, however,
To get Anynet working over the Broadband connection ...
* Configure Anynet as per the IBM manual on each iSeries
* Configure each destination-router with an 'Anynet' Service; it uses
TCP and UDP on port 397
* Configure each destination-router 's "Application Level Gateway"
(aka port-forwarding) with an entry passing all Anynet traffic to your
iSeries' intranet ip-address (e.g. 192.168.1.xxx).
This did it for me.

For DDM anyhow, there is directly TCP/IP support; i.e. no need for AnyNet
support. Per reference in a followup reply, to "one legacy
AS/400 running v5r1 in an 'old' office, due to be shut down in 6 to 7
months. I only need the Anynet connection until then, connecting it to the
iSeries in the 'new' office.":

I have configured AnyNet and it works in the isolation of each network
but does not seem to want to connect over the broadband.
I'm guessing that the bb-router/firewall may be one issue.
Redbooks document SG24-5291
_SNA and TCP/IP Integration_
"... On the TCP/IP side of the process, you have to designate a special port
(TCP and UDP) for use by AnyNet SNA over IP. This enables the TCP/IP stack
to route SNA over IP packets to AnyNet while native IP packets are sent to
their proper destination. The port number normally used is 397, the
well-known port for SNA over IP. Both TCP and UDP are required because
AnyNet uses UDP datagrams for expedited SNA data even if the normal data is
flowing on a TCP connection. ..."
