Well, one thing I was thinking was this:  If an attacker could get on to
"my side" of a connection by cracking my NT server, then he could sit on
my NT server observing the traffic to and from the AS/400 until he'd
gotten a nice collection of AS/400 passwords and user id's passing through
the NT box.  As I said though, I am asking questions because I really
don't know.  My concern isn't the "extra level" of security, my concern is
providing an attacker with a little hidey-hole on my system.
