I'm not Peter ... <g>. However, you can connect your AS/400 to the Internet for around $200 (UUNET ISP which gives you a full Class-C network) plus telco charges per month. AIMS ISDN will run in the neighborhood of around $36/month (ISP) plus $77/month (telco) unlimited ... BTW, we still had to purchase router/modem/firewall (~$1200) ... but that is the latest experience (we are just getting ISDN so the charges are current).
