Jeffery, 

        I would like for an interface box that would speak IP or APPC on 
 a host link and drive the ATB on a serial port.  You might talk with 
 some of the manufactures of the Lan Prinetr interfaces as most of them
 serial as well as parrell interfaces and can provide a custom translate
 that would support the ATB. Then the interface is just start a remote 
 printer on the AS/400.

        If you need a custom interface I might be able to help.
