Internet security is a huge concern, I think. IBM's IGN is just one ISP,
there are scads of others. And once you open yourself to the outside world,
you've got the potential of hackers galore.

Of course, getting into the 400 itself is very hard to do, but the risk may
more have to do with your network. Ergo, the need for firewalls, proxy
servers, etc.

But say more about IGN, please. Is this IBM Global Network, or a product on
the 400?

TIA
