Pete:
This is an interesting idea, however I have a couple of questions:
1.  Do you know what ISP will allow you to use a SLIP account.  It is my
understanding that (at least at v3r7) you can only use SLIP not PPP.  If
your ISP has a POP in the metro Atlanta area I'd like to know who they are.
2.  What IP address is assigned to your AS400? Don't you get dynamiclly
assigned an IP address each time you dial the ISP??

Thanks for the help.
Carl
