Rich,
You will need something to connect to their 400. If they use a gateway
you
will need to know about it and how to connect through it. If they are
running
TCP/IP on their 400 you can telnet, but the keyboard mapping can be very
frustrating. Any of the 5250 emulators shouldn't have any problem
through
a tunnel. I use CA through a Raptor tunnel almost daily.

One thing that could cause a snag, is if they use assigned device names.
If anyone else at your client connects to the 400 through the tunnel,
you
might want to ask what they use.

You will also need to find out from them what DNS and WINS settings you
should add to your '95 configuration.

Good Luck,
 -Steve Cotes
