I am looking at hooking an AS400 to the internet so that programmers can use 
it. I would like some input as to how and what I would need to do this.

I do not have the AS400 yet, thinking of a model 170. How many programmers 
could the base 170 handle? What would I need on the AS400? What type and speed 
of modem or will something on network handle this (I do not have the network 
ether) ? I would like to start off with ISDN 64K, then go to ISDN 128K, then 
whatever is next if need be. Or should I start with something else? Does anyone 
know how many programmers could work on each one of these lines without to bad 
a response (I would like sub second, if possible). In the future (two years)  
may need to tie more then one AS400 together. Would like PCs from the same 
location as the AS400 to have access to the internet.  Need to allow the 
programmers to upload/download source, files (data)  objects (if that is 
possible) and to print, all of this to PCs and AS400s (at other locations, 
over the internet).  What will need to be on the programmers PC, other AS400? 
Will a normal dial up access be fast enough? How secure is all of this going to 
be? Now for the all important question, cost, one time and monthly fees?  Since 
the monthly cost will have to be passed along to the programmers please keep 
that in mind when making recommendations ( I do not know how many programmers I 
will be starting with, lets say 1 to 10). Also I am not a network person, so 
not to technical.

Thank You for any input you may have.
