Hi Nik:
            We have conected ASP pages from an NT server with IIS 4.0 and
MTS, to the AS/400, via a COM object written in Java and compiled with
Visual J++, using the Java Toolbox/400 to access *DTAQ object in the AS/400.
There is an RPG program receiving from the *DTAQ in the AS/400.

            It work very fine and fast enough for us. We don't use in this
case Client Acces or any other package.
