I have tried to set up an ssh tunnel between my laptop and our linux
firewall, but no luck.  That is the closest I've come to something like
what you are talking about.

I would definately be interested.  Hmm...  Can it be set to work with a
linux firewall handling the ssl part and forwarding the unencrypted
results to the as/400?  I have some clients who can't afford an upgrade to
OS/400 but would like secure 5250 over the 'net.
