Same network adaptor to both 400 and interwait? i have nic's for 400
connection and DUN for internet ... both work same time no problem.
I originally was hardcoding ip address until DNS server was set up.
DNS on NT4 at the moment but v4r2 can fix that. Now ip dynamic both
ways. I just have more than one dns server configured. Even allows
me to use 400/http as if someone had not really beat us to the punch
for our first pick for url.

can get rid of msdlc and ns if you don't want printer emulation ...
been trying for months to make my 400 printouts print the same on pc
as 400 ... sure do miss the good old 16 bit rumba on pcs, it blew ca
away on printer emulation. I'm beginning to thing that the CA printer
emulation and the CA drivers to use 400 printers were all included 
in CA as a cruel joke. ha ha very funny, now how do i really use a
stinking printer ...
