Thanks, Henri, Scott.  Mochasoft seems to have an excellent product, judging 
from
the doc.

There are, of course, at least two problems with any remote java client:

(1) unless you "own" it, and run it standalone, it needs to be downloaded from a
web server, and it can only connect back to that same host.
(2) it is insecure, at least from my reading of the current RFC's.

A knee-jerk solution to this (indeed, my knee-jerk solution to most such issues
these days) is to insert a 10-cent Linux box in the middle.  In this case, the
box proxies the telnet connections and runs the webserver, does some 
firewalling,
and encrypts communication to the java client.  This saves the AS/400 sysadmin
the scary prospect of putting his/her machine "raw" on the net, running a
webserver, installing software, etc.  To him/her, it's a magic bullet.

But this is way off-topic, for which I apologize.
