Hi, everyone.  I'm hoping to get some input from this knowledgeable group.

Consider the following scenerio.  You have a single AS/400 in a main office 
with approx. 200 local workstations and several branch offices with no more 
than 30 users per branch.  Branch offices are located across the country.  (In 
Canada, but I think the situation would be similar in the US.)  All users are 
all running the same green-screen application and must share all files.  At 
present, all branch offices connect via Perle remote controllers over a frame 
relay network.

Now, suppose you are considering opening a new remote office (1000's of miles 
away) with another 200 users that must also share the same data and 
applications. What would be the preferred  method (ie., effective and 
relatively inexpensive) of getting them online?  A bunch more remote 
controllers in the new office?  Another AS/400 in the remote office using DDM?  
Something entirely different?

I'd be most grateful for any feedback from the list.

Lorne Sturgeoff.
