Yeah—and I like walking in fresh concrete, leaving my mark everywhere!

I looked briefly at NIPrint. It looks good, too. Both of these are listed
on IBM's Client Access web site. I went with Brooks because they explicitly
deal with AS/400 issues. Also, FWIW, I had a harder time setting up NIPrint
than Brooks' RPM. And we were in a hurry—so what else is new?

To add more about the IP connection, we haven't used the SLIP connection
yet. In our case, we'd need to get another card in the machine to support
the line. So far I've only come in via my ISP, and that also works fine.
