Stickly AS400, I'd use an ASCII WSC (however there is no PCI equivalent,
however on the 620 you can install a 6141 if the 620 has an SPD bus and
PSCI bus), or a protocol converter.  You have to have a LAN to do some
better comms.  If you put an Ethernet card in the AS400 and connect a
hardware RAS server ( we have installed Quick Stream Pro ), you can have
very fast TCP/IP dial up.  Estiamted cost is Ethernet card $1000, hub $50,
Qucik Stream Pro $900.  Then just use dial up networking on the PC and your
favorite TN5250 emulator.  (you can get the mochasoft shareware for a $250
company licence.)
My opinions.
